   schema:description ""Drawing on extensive research into the musical press of the period, David Tunley paints a vivid portrait of the nineteenth-century Parisian salons and the performers who sang in them. Against this colourful backdrop, he discusses the development of French romantic song, with its hallmarks of simplicity and clarity of diction. Combined with Italian influences and the impression made by Schubert's songs, the French romance developed into a form with greater complexity - the melodie. Salons, Singers and Songs describes this transformation and the seeds it sowed for music by later composers such as Faure, Duparc and Debussy."--Jacket."@en ;
