Notes and Editorial Reviews
In 1917, French composers Louis Durey, Georges Auric, and Arthur Honegger formed the Nouveaux Jeunes under the aegis of Erik Satie which, in 1919, with the addition of Germaine Tailleferre, Francis Poulenc, and Darius Milhaud, became Les Six. Durey’s work has been relatively unexplored compared to his five colleagues. Pianist and Durey scholar Jocelyn Dueck’s efforts have gone a long way toward righting that historical imbalance. Along with several critically acclaimed vocalists, she presents here this wonderful collection of recordings of several of succinct and rich art songs, in performances from unpremiered manuscripts. Jocelyn Dueck is known for her new music interpretations on the New York City circuit, premiering and commissioning works by composere Eve Beglarian, Lisa Bielawa, Tom Cipullo, Corey Dargel, Matthew Schickele, Daniel Felsenfeld, Judd Greenstein, John Glover, Daron Hagen, Gabriel Kahane, Libby Larsen, and more. She was a collaborator on the Billboard Chart-topper Five Borough Songbook, as well as its newly released second volume in 2017. She has served on the faculties of the Manhatten School of Music, Julliard, NYU, and Mannes: The New School for Music.
