Ailish Tynan: Faure Mélodies (Rosenblatt Recitals)

Ailish Tynan (Soprano); Iain Burnside (Piano);

Ailish Tynan has made a speciality of French song. The mélodies of Gabriel Fauré lie at the heart of his romantic but elusive style, and this selection ranges from the composer's youthful embrace of Italian style to late and quietly innovative settings of Verlaine in which simplicity and profundity of expression go hand in hand.


"Tynan’s lyric soprano offers to these songs the perfect balance between rich warmth of tone and crystal purity. Tynan is a refined and intelligent artist, one of charm and spontaneity. Rarely can one trace anything other than a smile on Tynan’s features. This highly recommendable release is excellently recorded and presented with texts and translations." (Classical Source)
