Gabriel Faure wrote his 45 Vocalises for students at the Paris Conservatoire, where he was director. For a century these vocalises have lain unknown to the musical world at large. Their first publication here marks a major event for the vocal teaching repertoire; a marvellous resource of skilfully devised vocal exercises ranging from elementary to advanced virtuoso level, all from one of history’s greatest song composers.
