EMI Classics L' heure exquise Marie-Nicole Lemieux. Brilliant Naxos Songs by Debussy Christopher Maltman. With Le son du cor Debussy conjures up a dreamworld entirely his own. The piano now takes up the reins of melody, while the voice chants, often on repeated notes. By comparison with La mer est plus belle , everything is understated, yet every syllable tells.
No one could compete with Debussy in his ability to engender light around his notes. We might almost say that the spaces between the notes are as important as the notes themselves. Predictably, the combination of bells and flutes in the same line brings out the best in him.
These were his final encounter with the poet whose words had inspired him to write nineteen songs in the space of twenty-two years. He had married in , but the union was not a happy one for him. The change in nomenclature would seem to speak for itself. Nevertheless this second dedication has its puzzling side. Until the final line, the male watchers and the ladies with flashing heels and white necks have been a corporate body—possibly one of those discreetly erotic encounters painted by Watteau.
Do all the male watchers share a single soul? Or is the poet the only one afflicted with trembling and astonishment? Or is the plural, as applied to the watchers, merely a poetic device, as it were a royal plural, obscuring the fact that the poet has been the only watcher of these tempting damsels?
Le faune is hardly more enticing. The astonishingly dissonant final chord delineates no firm key, as the song delivers no firm message. We even have to wait till the final word to find out that all this time the ostinato has represented the sound of tambourines. Or are these reminiscences of despair in league with the A flat? As with his passion for Rameau, his attraction to these poets spoke of a desire to avoid German excess and this comes out from his newspaper articles well before World War I and to pare his music down to a greater simplicity even than in his settings of Verlaine.
The most noticeable change for the listener is perhaps the absence of lushness in the piano parts. The tempo too is fluid, never settling for long, as the lover seeks consolation for his torment.
This consolation comes only with the last three chords, where Debussy indeed goes back to the past: to modality, and to the major chord ending a piece in the minor, the ancient tierce de Picardie. But this is the modality of a modern monk who is at home with the Internet and the mobile phone. The music, gliding silkily into harmonic regions undreamt of by Palestrina, seems so deeply spiritual that we are forced to wonder whether, as stated above, the composer was indeed an unbeliever.
