Poulenc at S. Cecilia

 Two mystical pieces by Poulenc. His Stabat Mater was written in 1950 after the sudden death of his friend Christian Bérard. Les Dialogues des Carmelites (1956) relates the true story of the execution of 16 nuns during the French Revolution. Poulenc was once described as “half monk, half delinquent” and often found it difficult to reconcile his faith with his transgressive lifestyle. Conducted by Stéphane Denève.
