In the dark pinewood

composer
1937
author of text
Chamber Music, xx; 1908

 
In the dark pinewood (1937) is a setting of a poem from James Joyce’s Chamber Music. The languorous rise and fall of the voice in unison with the rich harmonies of the piano’s right hand, shifting with ease between the darker flat side and brighter sharp side of C major, the voice broadening in augmentation towards the end, make this an especially rapt example of atmospheric love-song.

In the dark pinewood (1937) met en musique un poème de Chamber Music (James Joyce). La langoureuse montée et descente de la voix à l’unisson avec les riches harmonies de la main droite du piano, qui passent sans peine du côté sombre (bémol) au côté plus clair (dièse) d’ut majeur—la voix s’élargissant en augmentation vers la fin—fait de cette pièce une chanson d’amour extrêmement extatique, chargée d’atmosphère.

Français: Hypérion

In the dark pinewood (1937) ist eine Vertonung eines Gedichtes aus James Joyces Kammermusik. Das schmelzende Auf und Ab der Singstimme im Einklang mit den Harmonien der rechten Hand, die mit Leichtigkeit zwischen den dunkleren und helleren Aspekten der C-Tonalität wechselt, und die Ausbreitung der Stimme in Augmentation gegen Ende machen dies ein besonders entzückendes Beispiel eines atmosphärischen Liebeslieds.
