The deliciously lilting Divertissement of 1901 is the salon composer at her best, polish and elegance creating sheer enjoyment from the merest wisp of an idea, embellishing a bright D major tonality.

from notes by Calum MacDonald © 1994

Dans le Divertissement délicieusement cadencé de 1901, nous retrouvons Chaminade dans sa meilleure forme de compositeur de salon; sa brillance et son élégance tirent, du plus petit brin d’une idée, une pure délectation, en agrémentant une vive tonalité en ré majeur.

extrait des notes rédigées par Calum MacDonald © 1994
Français: Alain Midoux

Das köstlich trällernde Divertissement von 1901 zeigt die Salonkomponistin von ihrer besten Seite, denn Schliff und Eleganz lassen reines Vergnügen erstehen aus aus der bloßen Andeutung eines Motivs, das die strahlende Tonalität D-Dur ausschmückt.
