The complete melodies of Poulenc

The complete melodies of Poulenc

Followed by a drink to be shared with the artist

“The musical adaptation of a poem ought to be an act of love and never a marriage of convenience. I have never been able to do without poetry.” Written between 1919 and 1961, Poulenc's melodies – spread over five dates – tempt one to an evocative journey over nearly half a century of French poetry.
