Gigue, Op 43

composer

 
The superb D major Gigue, Op 43, dedicated to the composer and conductor Camille Chevillard is one of Chaminade’s frequent studies in semi-archaic dance rhythm, and one of the more brilliant. Though the general impression is ‘mock baroque’, carried through with joyful velocity, the piece is remarkable for its inventive and enlivening use of cross-rhythms, and for a keyboard style whose solidity and energy suggest Brahms in his bravura moods.

La superbe Gigue en ré majeur, op. 43, dédiée au compositeur et chef d’orchestre Camille Chevillard est l’une des fréquentes études de Chaminade sur le rythme de danse semi-archaïque, et l’une des plus brillantes. Bien que l’impression générale soit «faux baroque», exécutée avec une vélocité joyeuse, le morceau est remarquable par son utilisation inventive et animée de rythmes croisés, et pour un style de clavier dont la fermeté et l’énergie suggèrent Brahms dans ses moments de bravoure.

Français: Alain Midoux

Die vortreffliche Gigue in D-Dur op. 43, die dem Komponisten und Dirigenten Camille Chevillard gewidmet ist, zählt zu Cécile Chaminades häufigen Versuchen an halb archaischen Tanzrhythmen, und von diesen ist einer der gelungensten. Zwar ist der Gesamteindruck der einer mit fröhlicher Rasanz ausgeführten „Barockparodie“, aber das Stück besticht insbesondere durch seinen einfallsreichen und belebenden Einsatz sich überlagernder Rhythmen und einen Klavierstil, dessen Wucht an Brahms in Bravourstimmung denken läßt.
