So you’ve had this project Green in mind for a long time?
PJ: It’s been in the works for about eight years. I love Verlaine’s poetry and his universe, made up of languor and melancholy as well as lightness and humour. I find myself there. Just think of the themes and the characters of his second collection of poems, Fêtes galantes, with its baroque side and its pastoral atmosphere. Most of his poems are short, arrhythmic – even dissonant . As he says in his Art poétique he prefers the odd lines out. It’s very human poetry, sensual but with childlike simplicity.
Philippe Jaroussky sings these intimate lines three times on his forthcoming double album of Verlaine poetry in mélodies and chansons from Fauré to Ferré. Debussy, Fauré and André Caplet all set the poem Green, which gives the album its enigmantic title.

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’.
