FRANCE/ESPAGNE New Release

Les Siècles’ last recording makes us travel through a fantasized Spain, as imagined by 19th century French composers.

 

“The East has taken on the form of a generalised preoccupation to the intelligence and to the imagination,” wrote Victor Hugo in his preface to Orientales in 1829. To the Romantics, the East was certainly much more than a geographical region; it was a concept, an atmosphere, composed of colour and imagery, the borders of which could never be clearly drawn. For many French artists the East offered a radical change of scenery, and it is this that many French artists throughout the 19th century went seeking, without even having to cross the Mediterranean, in Spain. Napoleon’s Spanish campaign lasted from 1808 to 1814 and opened the gateway to the reality of Spain that until then had been but a dream. In 1853, the marriage of Napoleon III to Eugénie de Montijo, of grand Iberian noble blood, kindled an already very real infatuation for the country since the publication and success of Alfred de Musset’s Contes d’Espagne et d’Italie (1830).

The works on the disc are some of the most beautiful pages of Spanish-inspired French music. They reveal the Belle Époque taste for sumptuous orchestrations and picturesque joy that the mere word “Spain” evoked to all.
