The music of Francis Poulenc (1899-1963) : a catalogue by Carl B Schmidt( Book )

17 editions published between 1995 and 2002 in English and held by 466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Francis Poulenc (1899-1963) first came to prominence in the 1920s as a member of Les Six, a group of young French composers encouraged by Satie and Cocteau. His subsequent fame spread well beyond France, and he is now regarded as one of this century's most significant composers. His music is heard constantly in concert halls the world over, and numerous recordings, including complete sets of songs and piano music, have been released. Books, articles, and more than a dozen doctoral dissertations have discussed his music. Carl Schmidt's Catalogue represents the first comprehensive attempt to list approximately 185 compositions written between Poulenc's teenage years and his death at the age of 63. The Catalogue identifies a number of unpublished works and adds a small group of compositions to his musical canon for the first time
Entrancing muse : a documented biography of Francis Poulenc by Carl B Schmidt( Book )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is traditional wisdom that a composer's popularity wanes for at least ten years after his death. Not so with Poulenc, whose music gained almost universal acceptance immediately after his death at the age of sixty-four. The present documented biography charts a new course in Poulenc scholarship by relying on thousands of primary sources, many of which have not been consulted by earlier Poulenc biographers. It is a detailed scrutiny of his day-to-day activities and his relationships with many friends and acquaintances. This study seeks not only to examine Poulenc as a composer, but to place proper emphasis on his extensive career as a pianist and recording artist
