Poulenc: Voyage à Paris: songs

Our rating 
2.0 out of 5 star rating 2.0

COMPOSERS: Poulenc
LABELS: Arabesque
WORKS: Voyage à Paris: songs
PERFORMER: Robert White (tenor); Samuel Sanders (piano)
CATALOGUE NO: Z6713
This Poulenc recital has commendable moments, not least the heartfelt account of ‘Hôtel’, but ultimately it disappoints. White often tries too hard, especially in ‘Fêtes galantes’ and the more rakish songs, notably ‘Voyage à Paris’, are predictable in Sanders hands. Christopher Dingle
