This is such a beautiful piece! Written in about 1884, Bruneau has accompanied his sumptuous melody with a flowing accompaniment. Pure French pleasure!
Mellow and expressive in character with much use of the low register. Taffanel performed it and the swirls of notes amongst the slow melody are full of French character. Bruneau was also a writer of operas and was much associated with Zola. Another unjustly neglected piece of forgotten music
