B1030. PIERRE BERNAC. The Interpretation of French Song. New York, Praeger, 1972. 326 pp. Index of Titles; Index of First Lines; Music examples; DJ.
“THE INTERPRETATION OF FRENCH SONG is the standard work on its subject, and its author the greatest living authority. Pierre Bernac had a long and distinguished career as a singer, specializing in the French song (or mélodie) repertoire. For many years he was incomparably partnered by Francis Poulenc, one of the composers discussed in this book.”
