"The programme has been thoughtfully chosen ... (provides) contrasts between the perky Poulenc and the one who could cosset himself in his luxuriantly purple harmonies. The range of voices and the different vocal timbres have likewise been shrewdly deployed." - Gramophone This is the fourth release in a series of the complete songs of Francis Poulenc, performed by some of the greatest singers of the day and accompanied by exceptional Scottish pianist Malcolm Martineau. Having composed more than 150 works for piano and voice over a period of 44 years, Poulenc's songs remain consistently popular the world over. Varying in their individual style and character in a way that defies generalization, he set music to a wide range of French poetry, both ancient and modern, from the serious to the surreal.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
