Il pomeriggio d’un fauno-Stéphane Mallarmé e Claude Debussy

La musica di C. Debussy di questo preludio è una illustrazione del bellissimo poema di Stéphane Mallarmé. Sono piuttosto set successivi attraverso i quali si muovono i desideri ei sogni di un fauno nel caldo del pomeriggio.

faune G. Barbier 1913

Faune – G. Barbier 1913IL FAUNO

Quelle ninfe, le voglio perpetuare.

Chiare così le loro carni lievi
Che nell’aria volteggiano assopita
Di folli sonni.

Forse amai un sogno?

Dirama il dubbio, cumulo d’antica
Notte, in fronde sottili che, rimaste
Il bosco vero, provano ch’io solo,
Io solo, ahimé! m’offrivo per trionfo
La caduta ideale delle rose. Traduttore Adriano Gerrini

The music, by Claude Debussy, of this prelude is a very free illustration of the beautiful poem by Stéphane Mallarmé. Rather successive sets through which move the desires and dreams of a faun in the heat of the afternoon.

faune 2

These nymphs, I would perpetuate them.
So bright
Their crimson flesh that hovers there, light
In the air drowsy with dense slumbers.
Did I love a dream?
My doubt, mass of ancient night, ends extreme
In many a subtle branch, that remaining the true
Woods themselves, proves, alas, that I too
Offered myself, alone, as triumph, the false ideal of roses –

La musique de ce Prélude est une illustration très libre du beau poème de Stéphane Mallarmé. Ce sont plutôt des décors successifs à travers lesquels se meuvent les désirs et les rêves d’un faune dans la chaleur de cet après-midi.

faune 1

Le Faune

Ces nymphes, je les veux perpétuer.

Si clair,
Leur incarnat léger, qu’il voltige dans l’air
Assoupi de sommeils touffus.
Aimai-je un rêve ?
Mon doute, amas de nuit ancienne, s’achève
En maint rameau subtil, qui, demeuré les vrais
Bois même, prouve, hélas! que bien seul je m’offrais
Pour triomphe la faute idéale de roses –
