201201Alice Coote2012071620120721

Live from Cadogan Hall, London

Presented by Clemency Burton-Hill

British mezzo-soprano Alice Coote and her regular accompanist Julius Drake perform a personal selection of French songs by Gounod, Saint-Saëns, Fauré, Satie, Hahn and Poulenc.

Widely sought after on the international opera stage, Alice Coote makes the first of three appearances in this year's Proms season to launch the Proms Chamber Music series. At the heart of each song is the marriage of melody and French poetry and this programme takes us on a voyage through French 'mélodie' from its early blossoming in the middle of the 19th Century with music by Gounod and Saint-Saëns, through its full bloom in the radiant Belle Époque gems of Faure and Hahn through to its late flowering in the works of Poulenc.

Poulenc: Voyage à Paris.

Fauré: Poeme d'un jour; En sourdine; Au bord de l'eau;

Les roses d'Ispahan; Le secret; Notre amour.

Gounod: Au printemps.

Saint-Saëns: Aimons-nous.

Hahn: L'énamourée; Fumée; Dans la nuit; L'heure exquise.

Satie: Je te veux.

Poulenc: C'est ainsi que tu es; Hôtel; Les chemins de l'amour.

Alice Coote (mezzo-soprano),

Julius Drake (piano).

This concert will be repeated on Saturday 21st July at 2pm.
