CKD 488


    “Apart from his nimble dexterity, Freeman-Attwood's playing is just as striking for the beauty of his lyrical phrasing and his richness of colour.” Gramophone
    “Such is Freeman-Attwood's supreme control in the higher register that he somehow manages to combine ringing clarity with creamy smoothness, pin-point intonation and effortless agility.” International Record Review
    “… Freeman-Attwood has a simply golden tone and full command of his instrument…” MusicWeb
• This is the world-premiere recording of Fauré's complete vocalises, a thirty-strong collection which has not seen the light of day in over a hundred years.

• Written when Fauré was Director of the Paris Conservatoire, these exquisite vignettes find new life in this performance by a fellow Director, the Royal Academy of Music’s Principal, Jonathan Freeman-Attwood.

• Originally ordered by increasing technical challenge Jonathan instead orders the pieces by the music's varied ‘affect’ and aptly places them in a context central to Fauré.

• Jonathan is accompanied by pianist Roy Howat who is uniquely qualified in this role, having edited the newly discovered vocalises with Emily Kilpatrick for publication in 2013.

• ‘Fauré: Lydia's Vocalises’ includes several bonus French works - which also started life as works for instruments other than trumpet and piano - originally featured on the albums La Trompette Retrouvée and Trumpet Masque accompanied by Daniel-Ben Pienaar.

• As a trumpet player and recording artist, Jonathan has attracted plaudits from the press; his producing career has resulted in over 200 albums and several awards including eight Gramophone Awards.

• Jonathan broadcasts regularly for BBC Radio 3 and is in demand as an essayist for EMI, Warner, Deutsche Grammophon and other major record labels.

• Roy studied French piano repertoire intensively in Paris; his specialization in French music has yielded two groundbreaking books Debussy in Proportion and The Art of French Piano Music.
