Description: Hyperion marks the 50th anniversary of Poulenc's death with a rare box-set new release (this series usually comes in single discs). Recorded over a period of three and a half years, the songs are presented in four programs (although they are chronological within each program): Métamorphoses (feminine verse and poems of childlike wonder), Main dominée par le cœur (all of the settings of Eluard, along with Aragon, Desnos and one cycle of Apollinaire), Parisiana (title self-explanatory, the rest of his Apollinare settings and more) and Fancy (folk-songs, old French poems, Polish poems, Lorca, Max Jacob and Shakespeare). The 178-page book contains the full Graham Johnson treatment of the poems and the music (this takes up 155 pages) and 44 photographs and reproductions of scores and other period memorabilia. 4 CDs for the price of 3. French, Polish-English texts.
