Happy Birthday, Ernest Chausson

Gerard Souzay & Philippe Sly
 In celebration of Ernest Chausson's birthday we thought that you'd enjoy hearing the great Gerard Souzay and current heartthrob and Met Auditions finalist Phillipe Sly offer their versions of the beautiful song Le temps des lilas.

Just for fun, here is countertenor Philippe Jaroussky with his beautiful version of the same song.

  1. For over fifty years I have championed Souzay as my favorite baritone, his handsome perfection in physical form and utmost in performance practice placing him in a class by himself. This selection has given such insight as to his unbelievable talents and I wish to thank you for this opportunity for all to hear what he represented in the field of art song, Lieder, and chanson. He shall never be replaced at those heights. My thanks.
