French Song Series: Masques et Bergamasques

In this concert, the second in Graham Johnson’s French Song Series, the pursuits of the idle rich, so ardently cultivated by French aristocrats in the decades before the Revolution, are recalled in Debussy’s youthful first book of Fêtes galantes, erotically charged settings of verse by Paul Verlaine.

The symbolist poet’s English years, chiefly spent as a school-teacher in Lincolnshire, were prefaced by a spell in prison following his drunken attempt to shoot fellow author and libertine Arthur Rimbaud.

Ailish Tynan, soprano
Yann Beuron, tenor
