Berceuse in B flat major, Op 38


The Berceuse, Opus 38, dates from 1871 and is dedicated to Paul Viardot, the violinist son of the celebrated singer Pauline Viardot, a close friend. A calm serene work, it has a simple, memorable melodic quality that places it close to Saint-Saëns’s best-known piece, ‘The Swan’.

Datée de 1871, la Berceuse, opus 38 est dédiée à Paul Viardot, violoniste et fils de la célèbre chanteuse Pauline Viardot, amie intime de Saint-Saëns. Sa qualité mélodique simple et mémorable place cette œuvre calme et sereine aux côtés de la plus fameuse pièce du compositeur, «Le Cygne».

Die Berceuse Op. 38 stammt aus dem Jahr 1871 und ist dem Violinisten Paul Viardot gewidmet, dem Sohn der berühmten Sängerin Pauline Viardot, einer guten Freundin. Das ruhige, heitere Werk hat eine schlichte, einprägsame Melodik, die es in nächste Nähe von Saint-Saëns’ bekanntestem Stück „Der Schwan“ bringt.
