About this Song
A beautifully transparent French Art Song for solo soprano and piano accompaniment written by Claude Debussy. Paul Bourget’s poetry is masterfully set in the hauntingly impressionistic style that Debussy is so famous for. The translated text gives the advice for the troubled heart to ascend towards happiness; to taste the charm of being in the world while one is young and the evening is beautiful. This Classical Art Song, has a lovely lyrical soprano line set against a very legato triplet accompaniment in the piano.
