The French composer and bassoonist François René Gebauer (1773-1845) and his three brothers was closely tied to the history of French military music and the beginnings of the Conservatoire de Musique. As was customary at that time, the woodwind players also had complete command over other woodwind instruments, and therefore it comes as no surprise that Gebauer wrote a flute method- perhaps for his younger brother- which was soon followed by duos as well.60 Methodical Lessons, first published in 1798, are entirely in the tradition of the French methods (Devienne, Hugot, etc.). Gebauer chose the form of duet and formulated headings for each exercise which make his idea of methodical steps clear: After elementary exercises in the beginning, the second half focusses on the development of the playing skills and an increasing understanding of music. The exercises cover a wide range from sound exercises via articulation and rhythm exercises to ornaments. A varied addition to the beginner´s repertoire.

Of all his early chamber works, the ´Nocturne´ is most clearly by the mature Vaughan Williams, almost anticipating the influence of Ravel which followed his lessons from the French composer in 1908. In the veiled beauty of its highly chromatic harmonies we hear already the tone-poet of the slow movement of ´A London Symphony´, while in the fleet-footed ´Scherzo´ there is already a French influence in the way the folk-song is subtly woven into the texture, only brief snatches of the tune being heard until the penultimate page when it receives fuller treatment. The work plays for about 10 minutes. The 1904 ´Scherzo´ is a vigorous march with fugal episodes which lasts some 6 minutes and may effectively be performed by itself.
DescriptionThis is a collection of the most famous songs of Fauré. Diction lessons were recorded by coach, conductor and diction specialist Pierre Vallet. The diction for each song is recorded twice: first recited as an actor would speak it, showing flow of the language and mood, followed by a slow, deliberate lesson, allowing time for the student to repeat each line. This experienced language coach adapts the ´´R” in French in the slow versions as recommended for classical singers. He is also very sensitive to liaisons between word sounds in musical settings.SonglistApres Un ReveAu Bord De L´eauAuroreAutomneChanson D´amourClair De LuneIci-bas!Le SecretLes BerceauxLes Roses D´ispahanLydiaMandolineNellNotre AmourRencontre
