Description: Although he studied with Guilmant and Widor and was a prodigy as organist from an early age, Fourdrain was known in France as a composer of comic operas and operettas (he's not in Grove or Opera Grove). These songs, only one of which surpasses three minutes in length, are delicately beautiful, almost ephemeral pieces and represent a nice discovery for collectors of the French mélodie. French-English texts. Liliana Górska (soprano), Piotr Ejsmont (piano).
