L'Après-midi d'un faune
Debussy's L'Après-midi d'un faune is a musical interpretation of a poem by the French poet, Stéphane Mallarme. It has been said that the poem is so elusive in meaning, so subtle in its refinements of language, that it is practically untranslatable into another tongue. Debussy's is perhaps the only medium suited to an exposition of the poem. The picture is of a faun who, waking at dawn in the forest, tries to recall what happened to him before he fell asleep. His musings are confused with visions of nymphs, who spent the afternoon with him, and the possibility that the whole thing has been a dream coloured with the music of his own flute.
Schumann's Third Symphony
Schumann's Symphony No. 3, in E flat was composed during 1850. It was inspired by a visit to Cologne where Schumann was deeply impressed with the famous view of the Rhine and the Seven Hills, and above all the Cathedral. Although the ' Rhenish ' Symphony is by no means a perfect symphony, particularly from the point of view of orchestration and development of thematic material, it is, however, full of lovely music which has a certain rustic simplicity and charm.
' If the impressive fourth movement', says Sir Donald Tovey , ' is regarded as part of the Finale, not merely as introductory, then the final quick movement will become intelligible as the natural and almost lyric reaction from the awe inspired by the Cathedral of Cologne as described in one of the finest pieces of ecclesiastical polyphony since Bach.'
