Impressive is the Romance in D of 1910, whose syncopated chordal accompaniment effectively sustains the tension of a very Fauréan, ambiguously troubled main idea.

from notes by Calum MacDonald © 1992

La Romance en ré, de 1910, est frappante; son accompagnement d’accords syncopés soutient de manière effective la tension d’une idée principale très Fauréenne, à la préoccupation ambigüe.

extrait des notes rédigées par Calum MacDonald © 1992
Français: Alain Midoux

Eindrucksvolle ist die 1910 entstandene Romanze in D-Dur, deren synkopierte Akkordbegleitung effektiver die Spannung eines stark an Fauré orientierten, vieldeutig verstörten Hauptthemas aufrechterhält.
