Ariettes oubliées

Claude Debussy (1862-1918)

Ariettes oubliées

Debussy's Ariettes oubliées were composed intermittently between 1888 and their publication year of 1903, and consist of six songs set to texts by the French symbolist poet Paul Verlaine. Verlaine influenced Debussy with  the dream-like quality of his poetry: the suggestion of something was the ideal, rather than the concrete statement - nuance rather than the bold colour. Debussy was  reaching his maturity as a composer with the Ariettes - their melody and harmony are moving towards the rarefied atmosphere we associate so much with him today.
