Gabriel Fauré, the master of the chanson, had an unrivalled talent for turning the emotions and images in poetry by Victor Hugo, Charles Baudelaire, Paul Verlaine, Molière and other great poets into enchanting soundscapes. The exceptional French baritone Marc Mauillon pays tribute to Fauré, following his songs chronologically and thus offering a sense of how the composer’s mastery developed. De Volkskrant wrote: “The man who goes through life as a tenor and a baritone sings Fauré with a naturalness you associate more with French chansons than classical lieder. Clear high notes with little vibrato.”
