Diva / Mensch pair for 2/12/20
This week I'm highlighting another master of the art song form, Francis Poulenc. I'm using recordings by the quintessentially French soprano Mady Mesplé, with Gabriel Tacchino at the piano.
Both songs have a slow tempo. "C" has the Diva attitude because it's grand and tragic. "Fleurs" is the Mensch because it's a sweet, lovely song about flowers.
