Le Sylphe, M73

First line:
Je suis un sylphe, une ombre, un rien, un rêve
author of text

The Franck songs show two sides of his personality. Le Sylphe written in 1842–3 to words by Alexandre Dumas, is a charming and sensuous example of Franck’s early secular style.

from notes by Steven Isserlis © 2003

Les mélodies de Franck dévoilent deux aspects de son tempérament. Ecrit en 1842–43 sur un poème d’Alexandre Dumas, Le Sylphe est un exemple charmant et sensuel du style séculaire antérieur de Franck.
