Dans le jardin, L107

First line:
Je regardais dans le jardin
1903; commissioned by Paul Gravollet for his Les frissons
author of text

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.

En 1903, quand il écrivit Dans le jardin, une mélodie commandée par le poète-acteur Paul Gravollet pour le volume Les frissons (auquel contribuèrent vingt et un autres compositeurs, dont Ravel, d’Indy et Widor), il était encore auréolé du succès de son opéra Pelléas et Mélisande, l’année passée—un opéra que cette mélodie trop rarement jouée rappelle d’ailleurs par son style conversant comme par ses tempi fluides (douze en moins de trois minutes).
