Notes and Editorial Reviews

George Butterworth’s moving cycle Love Blows as the Wind Blows lends its title to the solo debut album of Canadian baritone Etienne Dupuis. He also sings a rarely recorded English song cycle, Farewell Earth’s Bliss, by British composer Geoffrey Bush, and Dover Beach, an early work by Samuel Barber. This exquisite and refined program concludes with four French songs by Canadian composer Rejean Coallier based on poems by Sylvain Garneau. Dupuis also performs the iconic Irish folk song Danny Boy, arranged for voice and string quartet. Musicians of the Quatuor Claudel-Canimex, who play Barber’s famous Adagio in its original version for string quartet, accompany Mr. Dupuis. Etienne Dupuis has been receiving international acclaim since his debut Read more at Deutsche Oper Berlin in 2011 in the role of Zurga in the Pearl Fishers. Read less
