Description: Le poème, in a soprano version released by Timpani five years ago, is a 1924 cycle of 15 songs whose exuberant joy and absolute melancholy struck sparks off Vierne's own tortured personal life and let him write music of unbridled amorous passion and desparing desolation, making for a 37-minute sequence of power and raw emotion. The other two works were recently offered on the Australian Melba label in their orchestral versions; La ballade is similar in voice to Le poème by Psyché offers some bracing relief from misery. Texts available on-line. Michael Bundy (baritone), Jeremy Filsell (piano).
