Ravel’s last song cycle, Don Quichotte à Dulcinée, was originally composed with words by Paul Morand for the film Don Quixote (1933) directed by G. W. Pabst. Even though Don Quichotte à Dulcinée did not become part of Pabst’s film, the song cycle has become a favorite in the repertoire for baritones and basses.
The following analysis is a comparison of recordings by three baritone performers: Gérard Souzay, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, and José Van Dam.
Understanding a renowned singer’s style is important for anyone who aspires to become a fine singer because one can better identify their own positive and negative habits by studying these stylistic choices.
