Dans le jardin, L107
EnglishFrançais
By 1903, when he wrote Dans le jardin to a commission by the poet and actor Paul Gravollet for the volume Les frissons (to which twenty-one other composers also contributed, including Ravel, d’Indy and Widor), he was still basking in the success of his opera Pelléas et Mélisande the previous year. The conversational style of this all-too-rarely performed song harks back to that of the opera, as do the fluid tempi—twelve different ones in under three minutes.
