An Aria A Day #110

‘Chanson d’amour’
by Gabriel Fauré
Piano Narelle French

26th August, 2020

Born in Port Moresby, Heru Pinkasova was a member of Opera Queensland’s Young and Developing Artist Program in 2011 and 2012.

French pianist, organist and teacher Gabriel Fauré was considered one of the foremost composers of his generation, influencing many 20th-century composers. The enduring ‘Chanson d’amour’ (‘Love song’) is not often performed by female singers due to the unambiguously masculine text. Fauré, however, keeps the mood light. Where other composers may have imbued more drama into the musical setting of a line such as “my hell and my paradise”, Fauré’s melodic line is surprisingly sweet.
