There is no better guide than Graham Johnson to the songs of Gabriel Fauré (says BBC Music Magazine)

We are delighted to read another glowing review for Graham Johnson’s new book Gabriel Fauré: The Songs and their Poets, this time in the February issue of BBC Music Magazine

‘No better guide … could be found than Graham Johnson, one of our leading accompanists and someone whose knowledge of the entire song repertoire would be hard to match. As a performer who has spent a lifetime interpreting this music …Johnson knows it inside out. But he also possesses a deep understanding of each song’s position within Fauré’s own life, and indeed within the wider French cultural environment as a whole.…Richard Stokes’s translations of the texts aligned with the originals are an added bonus.…an ideal guide to one of the most important figures in the song repertoire, valuable to performers and listeners alike.’
