Notes and Editorial Reviews

Gaubert is less well-known as a composer of songs. This is, however, to forget that throughout his life Gaubert composed for the voice, leaving more than 90 such works! The performers have chosen more than thirty, alternating vocal ranges and reflecting the composer’s preferences with regard to poets: Verlaine, Derème, Baudelaire, and above all Paul Fort (3 volumes and a few other songs). Should this astonish us? There is in Gaubert a straightforwardness, a hatred of convoluted sophistication, and this ties him to the ‘prince of poets’. A great discovery!
