Product Description
Lili Boulanger, who died in 1918 at age 24, was a great composer, and her few works are precious. Clearings in the Sky is a song cycle depicting with amazing insight a young man's sorrow at a failed love affair. Its beautiful melodies are supported by an adventurous harmonic background. Jean-Paul Fouchécourt has the perfect light French tenor and just the right expression for this moving music. The three little piano pieces are lovely miniatures, and as for the four songs, they may never have been recorded before. Beaufort sounds slightly plummy and querulous, but only slightly. Alain Jacquon plays magnificently throughout. With complete texts and translations, this disc is a treasure. --Leslie Gerber
