HASH(0x963a5d74) étoiles sur 5 Delightful Faure Orchestral Masterpieces 31 janvier 2011
Par Robert E. Nylund - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Gabriel Faure was a student of Camille Saint-Saens, but he developed a very unique and impressive style. He was much like a French equivalent of Ralph Vaughan Williams (especially the British composer's earlier works) because he wrote in a pastoral style that is often very melodic, very enjoyable, deeply moving, and almost comforting or reassuring at times. He lived from 1845 to 1924, about as long as his teacher (who lived from 1835 to 1921), and he became a very influential composer. Even the American composer Aaron Copland (1900-1990) greatly praised Faure, calling his music timeless and innovative.

Sir Neville Marriner's compilation, with the familiar Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, highlights some of the best of Faure's music. Perhaps the best known work on this disc is his "Pavane," a melody which many have heard but didn't know who wrote it. This is the version which features some lush choral writing. The addition of the mixed chorus further enhances a very lovely and enchanting work that is quite good in the more familiar version for orchestra alone. There is something about French singing anyway that often adds to music.

Another real treat is hearing Faure's exquisite "Fantasie for Flute," a clearly virtuoso work that combines the best of solo flute writing with impressive orchestral accompaniment.

One of my personal favorites is the suite drawn from the incidental music Faure wrote in 1898 for Maurice Maeterlick's symbolic drama, "Pelleas et Melisande." It is remarkable to learn that Faure wrote this music for a British production of the tragic story. Actually, Faure spent considerable time in the U.K. There are four movements in the suite and they are highly atmospheric. Faure's score was actually the first written for Maeterlinck's play and, although the playwright admitted he didn't know much about music, he was pleased with this music. It is helpful, of course, to know the basic story of star-crossed lovers who ultimately lose their lives because they fell in love and angered Melisande's husband.

There are considerable orchestral colors in the 1919 suite that Faure compiled, "Masques et Bergamasques." This is music which looks to the past, much like Respighi's "Ancient Airs and Dances for the Lute." It is a highly enjoyable and often lively work. Much of Faure's music is relatively quiet and serene; this suite has considerablly more animation than the other pieces on this disc.

As usual, Sir Neville Marriner displayed considerable versatility and considerable ability in conducting these top-notch performances of late romantic orchestral masterpieces.

HASH(0x963a5dc8) étoiles sur 5 good, but short 15 mars 2011

If you're looking for a representative sample of Faure's best (and best known) orchestral music, go no further. I've chewed through a number of renditions of these pieces by famous French orchestras and conductors, and Sir Neville has them beat hands down in terms of mood, attention to detail, and (where needed) orchestral sparkle. This is a delightful recording. Both the "Pelleas" and "Masques" suites get star treatment here. The Pavane also is well done, particularly if you prefer the version with the chorus; unlike some of his esteemed French colleagues, one doesn't feel as if Sir Neville is doing an obligatory phone-in of a classical radio lightweight.

On the other hand, (at under 45 minutes) the CD is hardly generous. So, 5 for the renditions, 3 for the value, average = 4 stars.

HASH(0x97a310c0) étoiles sur 5 3 1/2 stars -- elegant and refined, though the string sound could be warmer. 16 juillet 2015
Par Stanley Crowe - Publié sur Amazon.com

I like the Faure "Requiem" very much indeed, and some of the songs and piano works too, but his orchestral music doesn't exactly get my pulse racing. This is no doubt more a reflection of my limitations as a listener than any criticism of Faure, but I like a bit more energy than we get in the selections on this disc. The first and last movements of the "Pelleas" suite are appealing, and so are the first three movements of the "Masques et Bergamasques," with their charming classical pastiche, although to my ears the final movement is anti-climactic. In the lovely "Fantaisie" for flute, the great English flautist William Bennett gives an excellent account, and the well-known Pavane is nice, though the chorus is uncredited in the packaging of this disc. The sound is Decca early digital, from 1982, and the winds come across well, but I would have liked a bit more warmth from the strings -- at least as I hear them on my pretty good Bose headphones. No fault at all with the playing -- the ASMF sounds fine. The refinement and elegance of the pieces are well taken care of, even if I would like something a bit wilder. But I don't think I'm going to get that from Faure. NOTE: The disc is short measure at under 45 minutes -- but if you like Faure and can pick it up cheap (as I did), you won't be unhappy.

HASH(0x97a315e8) étoiles sur 5 Works for chamber orchestra 14 septembre 2013

There is a quite delightful selection of works on this Decca CD released on the Argo label. When Maurice Maeterlinck wrote his play Pelléas et Mélisande in 1893, I'm sure he had no vision of the beautiful music it would inspire. Claude Debussy wrote an opera and Arnold Schoenberg composed a symphonic poem with the Maeterlinck play as source of inspiration. Jean Sibelius and Gabriel Faure both wrote incidental music: Faure's was composed for a London production of the paly in 1898. Best known of the four movements is probably the Sicilienne featuring a solo flute (here, played by William Bennett).

The performance of the Pavane on this disc is the choral version, the choir giving added depth and atmosphere to this lovely work. Next is the short and rarely heard Fantaisie, which again features flautist William Bennett. The final work on this CD is the four-movement divertissement entitled Masques et Bergamasques composed in 1919 to a commission by R. Fauchois with some more lovely playing by Bennett and, throughout, by Neville Marriner and the Academy of St.Martin-in-the-Fields.
