Nell, Op 18 No 1
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The third piece in the 'Free Setting of Favourite Melodies' series is a transcription of the song Nell, Op 18 No 1, by Gabriel Fauré (1845–1924). Grainger’s exquisite treatment of this entrancing melody was made in February of the year in which Fauré died. Fauré may be counted among Grainger’s musical heroes. He first met him in March 1908 at the home of Leo Schuster, Fauré’s host and patron in England. Here Grainger played to Fauré his own compositions, and was very taken with him. This in turn led to a deep sympathy and lifelong passion for his music.
