The French composers in this programme matched eloquent native poetry to exquisite melodies. Fauré, for instance, was able to enhance the verse of Prudhomme and Leconte de Lisle, while Reynaldo Hahn applied his considerable song-writing gifts to Verlaine’s ‘D’une prison’.

Ilker Arcayürek, one of BBC Radio 3’s New Generation Artists for 2015–17, also explores Lieder by Brahms and Schumann.
