The author Pierre Bernac (1899-1979) was one of this century's most distinguished exponents of French song. His legendary duo with the composer Francis Poulenc lasted for 25 years, during which Poulenc composed over 90 songs specially for Bernac to sing. They toured together, performing works not only by Poulenc but by all the great composers of the French melodic. On his retirement from the concert platform, Bernac continued to teach for a further 20 years, giving masterclasses throughou Europe, Canada and the USA. In this book, Bernac brings all his personal experience to bear on the understanding and performance of French song. Among the eighteen composers covered are Berlioz, Gounod, Duparc, Chausson, Fauré, Debussy, Ravel, Satie and Poulenc. Texts of nearly 200 songs are given in French, with line-for-line translations by Winifred Radford, notes on pronunciation, and simple but detailed suggestions for performance and interpretation [Publisher description]"@en ;
