Mélodies - Prescience, Conscience

Anne Le Bozec and Marc Maurillon play Halphen, Hahn, Debussy...

4th volume of the collection Musicians and the Great War, the baritone Marc Maurillon accompanied by Anne Le Bozec at Bechstein piano perform pieces by Halphen, Février, Jürgens...

They were young and seemed assured of a brilliant future. They were Belgian (Devaere), German (Stephan, Jürgens), British (Butterworth, Farrar), Australian (Kelly) or French. On the eve of the conflict, in their songs and with an impressive sense of foreboding, they expressed at once nostalgia for a bygone era, wrestling with the eternal themes of oblivion and death, and the sorrows of their lives about to be upended. The survivors, striving to overcome bitterness and sadness, found the strength to sing forth the hope or peace they felt themselves to be regaining.
