Lucy Scollick (pianoforte) Vladimir Rebikov (1866-1920), one of the lesser Russian composers, wrote a number of charming little pieces, among which is the set of five, ' Les Rêves', which he calls ' Melomimiques '. Rebikov describes melomiming as ' a scenic art in which mimicry and instrumental music mingle in one indivisible whole. It differs from the ballet because the dance plays no part in it, and from pantomime pure and simple because in that music plays a part at least equal to that of mimicry. The region of mimicry begins where the word ceases and feeling reigns alone.'
' Naiade ' : The fisherman sleeps in his boat and dreams that a naiad sings him a song. ' Les Demons s'amusent': The demons sit motionless and silent, and amuse themselves watching Satan's daughter dance. 'La Nereide': By the sea the nereid is playing the harp in the moonlight. A triton comes out of the water and listens in silence.
In the distance a ship passes silently, leaving a silver trail on the sleeping waters. ' Dans la foret ' : The nymphs are dancing in the moonlight and only the rhythmic fall of their feet resounds in the sleeping forest.
