Voyage à Paris with Maria Jette and Mary Jo Gothmann, piano.


Wouldn’t a trip to sunny France be nice right around now? Not current France, but the Golden Age of French song from Gounod to Poulenc! Along with Chabrier, Massenet and Duparc, two fascinating and successful women are on the program: singer/composer Pauline Viardot and Germaine Tailleferre, the sole female member of Les Six.

Maria Jette and Mary Jo Gothmann have selected some of their favorite French songs and piano solos as well as some rarely-heard yet utterly delectable rarities from this rich vein, which ranges from sunny and simple through poignant and complex…and ends in a sexy bit of cabaret. What would Massenet drink at Crooners? Probably a nice rosé from Provence, or a judicious portion of absinthe!
