Presentation

La flûte de Pan, a setting by Pierre Louÿs, was composed by Claude Debussy in 1897 and published in 1899. It is the first song of his song cycle, Trois chansons de Bilitis.

In 1897, Debussy chose to set a few famous erotic poems by Pierre Louÿs, a friend of his. Those poems were all selected from Les Chansons de Bilitis, a collection of poems Pierre Louÿs would have translated from Ancient Greek. In really, Bilitis, the poetess contemporary of Sapho was a fictional character invented by Pierre Louÿs who wrote every poem himself.
Debussy, as many of his contemporaries, was very sensitive to reminiscences of Antique Greece and many of his compositions relate to some hedonistic, pagan philosophy (see l’Après-midi d’un faune). He would, later, remodel his song cycle for a small orchestra in 1900.

La flute de Pan is the first song of Trois chansons de Bilitis. The piano introduces the song with a sprightly, ascending scale resembling the sound of a panpipe. The voice is treated almost in a spoken way with the rhythms at the vocal line following closely the rhythm of the French spoken language. The medium range of the voice in which the vocal part is set, highlights the sensuality and intimacy of the words.
