A performance of French music for a summer's evening. Debussy's symphonic poem Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune was inspired by Stéphane Mallarmé's poem, and later was the basis for a ballet choreographed by Nijinsky and subsequently by Jerome Robbins. Les Biches Suite also started life as a ballet - Les Biches, whose literal meaning is female deer, is also slang for coquettish women. And lastly we have a selection of songs from Canteloube's Songs of the Auvergne. The Auvergne is a rural and mostly mountainous area of central France. These beauutiful arrangements of folk songs have been recorded by many singers and are ever-popular. We end with Chausson's Symphony written in 1890 and is often considered his masterpiece.
