Il dort encore, L34

early 1882
author of text

Even though Il dort encore, an extract from an unfinished comédie lyrique called Hymnis, contains the kind of sequences taken from Conservatoire textbooks, Debussy breaks the regularity of Banville’s verses and extends the reference to ‘Anacréon, chanteur mélodieux’, which is the heart of the song.

from notes by Roger Nichols © 2014

Même si Il dort encore, tiré d’une comédie lyrique inachevée (Hymnis), renferme des séquences typiques de manuels du Conservatoire, Debussy casse la régularité des vers de Banville pour prolonger la référence à «Anacréon, chanteur mélodieux», véritable cœur de la mélodie.

Français: Hypérion

Obwohl Il dort encore—ein Auszug aus einer unvollendeten Comédie lyrique mit dem Titel Hymnis—Sequenzen enthält, wie sie sich in den Lehrbüchern des Conservatoires fanden, bricht Debussy die Gleichmäßigkeit der Verse Banvilles auf und dehnt die Anspielung auf „Anacréon, chanteur mélodieux“ aus, welche das Herzstück des Liedes ist.
