Notes & Reviews:

Both listener and performer have been so long attached to the songs Faure wrote in the period 1860 - 1890 that it seems to have prevented us from embracing his later, and far more satisfying, works. "Lydia," "Clair de lune," "Après un rêve," and about 20 other songs from Fauré's early and middle years have achieved high status, and rightly so; as far as individual songs go they are the best of the best. But concert audiences will only occasionally encounter one of the late cycles: perhaps "Mirages," rarely the complete "La Bonne chanson," and even less likely Faure's perfectly executed final utterance "L'Horizon chimerique." Performances of the main work presented here - "La Chanson d'Eve" - are rarer still. How this 24-minute masterpiece has so completely slipped the net is a mystery and a tragedy!
