Sérénade, L29

First line:
Las! Colombine a fermé le volet
composer
early 1882; dedicated to Marie-Blanche Vasnier
author of text

 
Sérénade, dedicated to Mme Vasnier, is an example of the fantastical Debussy, later evident in the movement ‘Jeux de vagues’ in La mer, in the ballet Jeux and in Préludes such as La danse de Puck and General Lavine. He picks up early on the presence of a guitar, and there’s drama again in the second attempt at ‘Arlequin chante’—in a foreign key!

Dédiée à Mme Vasnier, Sérénade annonce le Debussy fantastique, celui du mouvement «Jeux de vagues» (La mer), du ballet Jeux et de préludes comme La danse de Puck et General Lavine. Très tôt, il perçoit la présence d’une guitare, et le drame resurgit dans la seconde tentative à «Arlequin chante»—dans une tonalité étrangère à l’harmonie!

Sérénade ist Mme Vasnier gewidmet und zeigt Debussys phantastische Seite, die sich später auch in dem Satz „Jeux de vagues“ aus La mer, im Ballett Jeux und in den Préludes, zum Beispiel in La danse de Puck und in General Lavine, äußern sollte. Er greift schnell die Anwesenheit einer Gitarre auf und beim zweiten Versuch von „Arlequin chante“ wird es wieder dramatisch—in einer entfernten Tonart!
