Sir Jack Lyons Concert Hall

Susan Young soprano

Nicky Losseff piano

Debussy     Ariettes oubliées

Poulenc     Fiançailles pour rire

Tailleferre     Six Chansons françaises

Lili Boulanger      Clairières dans le ciel

The second of our informal Friday evening song recitals is the fruit of a shared passion for French song as Susan and Nicky celebrate three beguiling French women: composers Lili Boulanger and Germaine Tailleferre, and poet Louise de Vilmorin. The programme includes two of their rarely performed works: Boulanger’s sensuous Clairières dans le ciel and Taillerferre’s acerbic Six Chansons françaises. It celebrates the centenaries not only of Boulanger but also Debussy (Ariettes oubliées) and the half-centenary of Vilmorin, Poulenc’s favourite poet of the frivolous and futile (Fiançailles pour rire).
