Fête galante, L31

First line:
Voilà Silvandre et Lycas et Myrtil
early 1882
author of text
after Clément Marot

More feeling is evident in Fête galante, despite the flippant inscription on the title page of the manuscript: ‘Musique Louis IXV [sic] avec formules 1882’. The tune will be familiar from its revival in the ‘Menuet’ of the Petite Suite for piano duet.

Il y a manifestement davantage de sentiment dans Fête galante, quoi qu’en dise l’inscription désinvolte de la page de titre du manuscrit: «Musique Louis IXV [sic] avec formules 1882». Cet air sera connu grâce à sa reprise dans le «Menuet» de la Petite Suite pour duo pianistique.

In Fête galante wird noch mehr Gefühl spürbar—trotz der leichtfertigen Überschrift auf der Titelseite des Manuskripts: „Musique Louis IXV [sic] avec formules 1882“. Die Melodie ist von ihrer Wiederverwendung im „Menuet“ der Petite Suite für Klavier zu vier Händen her bekannt.
