Range Green

Green, a setting by Paul Verlaine, was composed by Gabriel Fauré in 1891 and published the same year. It is the third song of his op.58, cinq Mélodies.

Green is to be found in Op 58, cinq melodies by Fauré. This opus (also named Cinq mélodies vénitiennes) is not a simple collection of songs but the first song cycle Fauré ever published. He found his inspiration during a few months stay in Venice at the house of the Princess Edmond de Polignac, a fervent supporter of his. She holds a central role in convincing Fauré to continue setting poems by Verlaine (his first tries were Clair de lune and Spleen in 1887 and 1888). The song cycle is dedicated to her. All the melodies unite in a common expression of love, from the dreamlike incantation of En Sourdine, to the extraverted passionate Green.

Green is the third melody of the cycle. The cords, at the piano part, seem to underline the genuine happiness of the poet. The vocal line adds a sense of sincerity to the ensemble, with its legato, luminous melody. In the second verse, the dialog between the vocal part and the piano builds into a passionate outcry of love. It is quite interesting to have a listen to Debussy’s version of Green as the two composers really succeeded in setting the same text in a distinctive way.
