The brilliance of the German Lied is revealed in the romantic songs of Schubert and Brahms and the early 20th-century songs of Wolf that fused music and speech in daring new ways. French song is no less remarkable. The melodies of Fauré are marvelously expressive and are enriched by subtle harmonies. Ibert wrote his Chansons de Don Quichotte for a film starring legendary Russian bass Feodor Chaliapin. The set of songs have Spanish accents and conclude with a moving final farewell of Quixote to Sancho Panza.
