Description: The mélodie holds a predominant place in this composer’s, numbering 120 of his more than 350 works. Flégier's songs, composed for his colleagues at the Opera de Paris, are large-scale and orchestrally conceived, sitting stylistically close to Fauré in their unassertive dignity and to Duparc in their sense of scale. All but Le Cor (famous in his time) receive either their first recordings or first modern recordings here. French-English texts. Jared Schwartz (bass), Mary Dibbern (piano).
