Musical Term of the Week

by Melissa Wimbish

Debussy’s music is crawling with sex. Here’s a lovely poem that is published along with “C’est l’extase” from his Ariettes Oubliées (Forgotten Airs). Take a few minutes to indulge in the glorious Elly Ameling singing this treasure in the mood-setting repertoire.

Le vent dans la plaine
Suspend son haleine

The wind on the plain
Holds its breath
(Favart)

languor - A dreamy, lazy mood or quality (Definition found on Wordnik)
