Le lilas, L36
EnglishFrançais
In Le lilas, not specifically dedicated to Mme Vasnier despite the unaccompanied high B in the last line, Debussy gets away from strophic settings and gives us a song without any repeated music, though for his own musical reasons he does repeat two of Banville’s lines—no possibility of causing the poet offence since this song, like all his Banville ones except Nuit d’étoiles, remained unpublished until well into the twentieth century.
