Après un rêve, Op 7 No 1

composer
1877, Op 7 No 1, ‘À Mme Marguerite Baugnies’, Hamelle: First Collection p67, C minor (original key) 3/4 Andantino
arranger
1910

 
Gabriel Fauré composed songs throughout his long career, Après un rêve first appearing in print in 1878 as Op 7 No 1. Unfolding a seamless flowering of melodic invention, in Casals’ instantly famous arrangement from 1910 this becomes a glorious song without words.

Gabriel Fauré a composé des mélodies tout au long de sa carrière; Après un rêve fut publiée en 1878 sous l’op. 7 no 1. Déployant un épanouissement continu d’invention mélodique, dans l’arrangement célèbre de Casals (1910) qui a connu d’emblée la célébrité, cette pièce devient un magnifique chant sans paroles.

Gabriel Faurés Liedschaffen erstreckt sich über seine gesamte, lange Laufbahn; Après un rêve war 1878 als op. 7 Nr. 1 im Druck erschien. Mit seinem ungebrochenen Fluss sprießender melodischer Erfindung wird es in Casals’ Bearbeitung von 1910, die auf Anhieb Berühmtheit erlangte, zu einem prächtigen Lied ohne Worte.
