Cantoloube: Chants d'Auvergne, Vol. 2

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Eddins
Soprano Véronique Gens and conductor Serge Baudo are ideally paired in this CD of selections from Canteloube's folk song arrangements, "Chants d'Auvergne" and "Chants de France," as well as his original composition "Triptyque." Both performers bring an innately Gallic sensibility to the songs -- a strong sense of lyricism; a predilection for warm, lush tone; and rhythmic suppleness. It's their ability to sustain this rhythmic freedom and fluidity without ever letting the energy slacken, their ability to breathe together, that's perhaps the most striking element of their collaboration. This repertoire sits perfectly for Gens' pure, radiant, and totally secure voice; she ...

Soprano Véronique Gens and conductor Serge Baudo are ideally paired in this CD of selections from Canteloube's folk song arrangements, "Chants d'Auvergne" and "Chants de France," as well as his original composition "Triptyque." Both performers bring an innately Gallic sensibility to the songs -- a strong sense of lyricism; a predilection for warm, lush tone; and rhythmic suppleness. It's their ability to sustain this rhythmic freedom and fluidity without ever letting the energy slacken, their ability to breathe together, that's perhaps the most striking element of their collaboration. This repertoire sits perfectly for Gens' pure, radiant, and totally secure voice; she floats over Canteloube's richly evocative orchestrations. The songs of "Chants d'Auvergne" never cease to delight with their musical warmth and wit. In "Chants de France," he sets more familiar French folk songs, and the resulting cycle is less well known, possibly because the source material is melodically simpler, mostly more restrained, and less colorful. His arrangements are lovely, but are somewhat less flamboyantly quirky and rambunctious than in the Auvergne songs. "Réveillez-vous!" is especially appealing, the highlight of the set. Canteloube's original "Triptyque," set to poems by Roger Frêne, is musically more sophisticated in its harmonic movement; the songs demonstrate the composer's gift for writing soaring melodies and reaffirm his mastery of brilliant orchestration. Orchestre National de Lille-Région Nord - Pas-de Calais plays fervently and expressively and sounds far more accomplished than its regional name would suggest.
