B0944. Raoul Duhamel. Lucien Fugère - Chanteur Scenique Français. (Preface by Sacha Guitry). Paris, Grasset, 1929. 203pp. Photos. (French Text) Softbound.
“An artist whom Paris loved so well that he never went over the borders of his country, and whose singing I have enjoyed more than words can tell, is the baritone Fugère. It is a loss to the world that he was so well loved at home that no other country had the privilege of hearing him, but the sweetness, the nobility, the charm of Fugère has never been equalled....while Pol Plançon was the finest French singer from the vocal standard, Fugère was the greatest male French artist on the operatic stage. Today he sings always with the same perfection, and he is an old man. That is the triumph of perfect voice production.”
