Synopsis

An acknowledged master of melodie, Francis Poulenc's prolific song /uvre exceeds the collections of all other French composers who wrote in this genre. Yet despite Poulenc's prolific output and its significance to art song repertoire, few volumes dedicated to study of Poulenc's works have appeared in print. This text offers a theory on the marginalized popularity of Poulenc's songs and strategies for their study that can assist performers in their appreciation and interpretation of his work. The Melodies of Francis Poulenc is the first work to contain the complete collection of Poulenc's song compositions, providing IPA transcriptions and word-for-word translations in an easy reference format. Also included are the highly regarded poetic translations of Winifred Radford. In their introduction to the songs, Deeter and Peavler formulate a methodology for the proper interpretation and study of the Poulenc's works. Finally, this work features a musical terms index, select discography of downloadable sound files, and a song title index.

Teachers of singing, vocal coaches, professional singers, accompanists, and students of art song will find the The Melodies of Francis Poulenc an invaluable tool for the study and instruction of Poulenc's songs.
