The op.84 collection was not the composer's idea, it was his publisher's. It brings together small pieces that were written across several decades. If I recall correctly the Nocturne was one of the newest ones.
I am now working on a discography of the works of Vagn Holmboe. Please visit and also contribute!

Oh. That reduces the incentive to listen together. I was imagining something along the lines of Hindemith's sets of diverse sonatas.

Gorgeous old fashioned serious but tender and radiant op 120 trio here from Trio Op 8

Tremendous sense of naturalness, authenticity, modesty in this Fauré cd. Some of the later songs, with double digit opus numbers, are fabulous. I'd kind of dismissed it before because I thought the earlier songs weren't so interesting: that was a mistake.

I was the names of a male and a female. To my disappointment, I found out the male was the vocalist.

A bit of amusing discussion about him here -from my post 18. All trained singers seem to hate him.

For me it's nothing that sophisticated. I don't really enjoy "classical" lieder/melodie singing, and male voices are less attractive than female.

I can only think of two releases in that genre that I really like.

This is a pretty new release - April this year. I have to say, I think Stéphane Degout is an outstanding barytone, flexible and expressive. Planès seems OK, rather nice. And the recording includes all the main Faure cycles for male voice - La Bonne Chanson, Mirages, Horizons Chimériques.
