But the charge has been made about Poulenc that while he could produce gorgeous and memorable melodies, he often didn't know what to do with them. If there is some truth in that claim, then one can only say that such a composer would truly be at home in the genre of song, especially songs of very brief duration. Indeed, what we have here, for the most part, is a parade of distinctive melody in one song after another. Despite the composer's tendency to write brief and light songs, there are some serious works here — good ones, too.
Pablo Picasso , from Le travail du peintre , is just one example.
Oddly though, it's a fairly conventional effort, not what you'd expect in a song devoted to one of the more progressive minds in 20 th century art. Poulenc himself thought very highly of these two songs, and he was a quite self-critical fellow. Citing examples of this or that in a collection of items seems almost futile, kind of like mentioning a few favorite moments from Wagner's Ring operas.

Still, I want to mention more, like the irresistibly charming songs of the Chopin-inspired set Huit chansons polonaises. I could go on but let me just say in summary that most of the music in this collection is quite engaging, often upon first hearing.
