the music

The product of an opera project abandoned by Richard Strauss, the Bourgeois Gentilhomme suite pays homage to Molière by taking up elements of Lully's original music in a resolutely neo-classical atmosphere, but what a pleasure to be able to listen to both the original and its copy! The farce is followed by the spells of the night and the distant horn at dusk in Britten's bewitching Serenade for tenor, horn and strings, his first great vocal cycle on English poems.
