A pleasure to contribute keys to this beautiful performance of one of Duparc’s most hauntingly beautiful songs.

Opera Queensland
Explore the rich melody of Duparc’s 1872 work ‘L’invitation au voyage’ for Bastille Day with soprano Leanne Kenneally Warnock. Taking its lyrics from a poem by Charles Baudelaire, Duparc’s ‘L’invitation au voyage’ is one of the most famous melodies of all time. It is rich with the composer’s signature depth and seriousness that he believed was lacking in the music of his peers.
