Description

In this delightful set of Conversations, the French writer Francois Hudry leads the tenor Hugues Cuenod on a voyage through the singer's life. By his intelligent and well informed questions, Hudry gently guides Cuenod on a series of visits to the great and the near-great with whom the singer has worked during his long and productive life. He tells us of his relationships with such legends as Mary Garden, Nadia Boulanger, Igor Stravinsky, and Ernest Ansermet. Cuenod's manner is relaxed and witty, his anecdotes sometimes mischievous.On every page of this little book, the insoucience and charm of this marvelous artist shines like sunlight. With an informative introduction by the internationalaccompanist, Graham Johnson, and a masterful translation by the American harpsichordist,Albert Fuller, Hugues Cuenod:With an Agile Voice initiates Pendragon's new series LIVES IN MUSIC in the most entertaining manner. Illustrations, bibliography,and a complete new discography round out this invaluable volume.
