The rarities of Pianists Corner: Lili Boulanger, D’un vieux jardin

Lili Boulanger, D’un vieux jardin

The work of Lili Boulanger (1893 – 1918), often of mystical or religious inspiration, is probably marked by the awareness of her illness, which will kill her at the age of 25. D’un vieux jardin, composed at the beginning of the First World War, is the first piece in a trilogy comprising D’un jardin clair and Cortège. Its mysterious tone and its chiaroscuro plays are characteristic of a rich and moving harmony, which can recall Fauré and Debussy, with a deeply personal touch.
