Cycle Maurice Denis and the music

Maurice Denis was always very close to the musical world. His friendship with Chausson, his affinity with the work of Debussy are only some examples which lead us to interest in its other choice musical in particular Schumann and Schubert. Illustration of musical theme in its frequent works and exchanges with the composeurs, the music was a source of inspiration essential at his work.
The cycle of this concerts recalls musical affinities of Maurice Denis through the melodies and Lieder, the chamber music and the opera.
“The music, more and more, has on my sensitivity a great capacity.”
Maurice Denis, (diary)
Pelléas and Mélisande de Claude Debussy Tuesday 7, Thursday 9, Saturday 11 and Tuesday November 14, 2006

Original version for piano song represented with the authorization of the Durand Editions.
Resumption of the creation of the museum of Orsay in June 2004.
Pelléas and Mélisande are a work which is directly related to Maurice Denis: he realised the decorations for the first production of the play of Maurice Maeterlinckin in the theatre de l'oeuvre of Lugné-Poe. This part evokes with wonder the artistic universe that the painter appreciate:
“… this poetry of the intuition (…), this of art to evoke and suggest, instead of telling and to say, this lyricism that the poets and the artists endeavoured to make pass in their works, in order to express more directly and more deeply mysteries of the sensitivity of the human heart (…)”
Maurice Denis, July 1923

Debussy was delighted by the buckled drama of mystery of Maurice Maeterlinck: he indeed sought a poetic work, in which the things are “known as with half”, allowing the music to be discrete and the actors to sing when "that the sorrow is worth" Cela en valait la peine . After nine years of work, the first representation of this lyric drama took place in the Opéra Comique in France in 1902. The version for piano, presented by the museum of Orsay, is seldom played. It amplifies the character intimist of this opera, top of the opera house of the twentieth century.
