Les roses, L28
EnglishFrançais
In Les roses we find Debussy’s familiar arch-shaped phrases and an almost through-composed song, ‘Et le riant feuillage’ having the only repeated music. Marked Avec un sentiment absolument passionné, it displays the composer’s fondness for oscillating pairs of chords, broken only occasionally by word-colourings, like the unexpected chord on ‘jeu’. No doubt Massenet was the influence here as in many of these songs, but Mme Vasnier’s evidently exceptional top B gets another unaccompanied outing in the final line.
