Jonathan Freeman-Attwood - Faure - The Times
02 August 2014The Times
This quirky but fascinating disc includes the premiere recordings of dozens of Gabriel Fauré's Vocalises - the tiny but ear-ticklingly imaginative vocal exercises on which he tested his students at the Paris Conservatoire. They were first published last year. The quirk is that the performer here is not a singer but a lyrical trumpet player, Jonathan Freeman-Attwood, who also plays transcriptions of other early 20th-century French music.
