Warner – Philippe Jaroussky video unveils his Verlaine songbook project ‘Green’

2015-01-30, Warner Classics

As Philippe Jaroussky points out in his new video, Paul Verlaine’s poems have been more frequently set to music than any other French writer’s. The countertenor has drawn together a double album’s worth of French mélodies and chansons with words by his favourite poet to create a personal Verlaine ‘songbook’.
