\nThese nymphs, I would perpetuate them.\n\n                                                    So bright\nTheir crimson flesh that hovers there, light\nIn the air drowsy with dense slumbers.\n\n                                           Did I love a dream?\n\nMy doubt, mass of ancient night, ends extreme\nIn many a subtle branch, that remaining the true\nWoods themselves, proves, alas, that I too\nOffered myself, alone, as triumph, the false ideal of roses.\n\n \n\nLet’s see….\n\n                    or if those women you note\nReflect your fabulous senses’ desire!\nFaun, illusion escapes from the blue eye,\nCold, like a fount of tears, of the most chaste:\nBut the other, she, all sighs, contrasts you say\nLike a breeze of day warm on your fleece?\nNo! Through the swoon, heavy and motionless\nStifling with heat the cool morning’s struggles\nNo water, but that which my flute pours, murmurs\nTo the grove sprinkled with melodies: and the sole breeze\nOut of the twin pipes, quick to breathe\nBefore it scatters the sound in an arid rain,\nIs unstirred by any wrinkle of the horizon,\nThe visible breath, artificial and serene,\nOf inspiration returning to heights unseen.\n\n \n\nO Sicilian shores of a marshy calm\nMy vanity plunders vying with the sun,\nSilent beneath scintillating flowers, RELATE\n‘That I was cutting hollow reeds here tamed\nBy talent: when, on the green gold of distant\nVerdure offering its vine to the fountains,\nAn animal whiteness undulates to rest:\nAnd as a slow prelude in which the pipes exist\nThis flight of swans, no, of Naiads cower\nOr plunge…’\n\n          Inert, all things burn in the tawny hour\nNot seeing by what art there fled away together\nToo much of hymen desired by one who seeks there\nThe natural A: then I’ll wake to the primal fever\nErect, alone, beneath the ancient flood, light’s power,\nLily! And the one among you all for artlessness.\n\n \n\nOther than this sweet nothing shown by their lip, the kiss\nThat softly gives assurance of treachery,\nMy breast, virgin of proof, reveals the mystery\nOf the bite from some illustrious tooth planted;\nLet that go! Such the arcane chose for confidant,\nThe great twin reed we play under the azure ceiling,\nThat turning towards itself the cheek’s quivering,\nDreams, in a long solo, so we might amuse\nThe beauties round about by false notes that confuse\nBetween itself and our credulous singing;\nAnd create as far as love can, modulating,\nThe vanishing, from the common dream of pure flank\nOr back followed by my shuttered glances,\nOf a sonorous, empty and monotonous line.\nTry then, instrument of flights, O malign\nSyrinx by the lake where you await me, to flower again!\nI, proud of my murmur, intend to speak at length\nOf goddesses: and with idolatrous paintings\nRemove again from shadow their waists’ bindings:\nSo that when I’ve sucked the grapes’ brightness\nTo banish a regret done away with by my pretence,\nLaughing, I raise the emptied stem to the summer’s sky\nAnd breathing into those luminous skins, then I,\nDesiring drunkenness, gaze through them till evening.\n\n \n\nO nymphs, let’s rise again with many memories.\n‘My eye, piercing the reeds, speared each immortal\nNeck that drowns its burning in the water\nWith a cry of rage towards the forest sky;\nAnd the splendid bath of hair slipped by\nIn brightness and shuddering, O jewels!\nI rush there: when, at my feet, entwine (bruised\nBy the languor tasted in their being-two’s evil)\nGirls sleeping in each other’s arms’ sole peril:\nI seize them without untangling them and run\nTo this bank of roses wasting in the sun\nAll perfume, hated by the frivolous shade\nWhere our frolic should be like a vanished day.’\nI adore you, wrath of virgins, O shy\nDelight of the nude sacred burden that glides\nAway to flee my fiery lip, drinking\nThe secret terrors of the flesh like quivering\nLightning: from the feet of the heartless one\nTo the heart of the timid, in a moment abandoned\nBy innocence wet with wild tears or less sad vapours.\n‘Happy at conquering these treacherous fears\nMy crime’s to have parted the dishevelled tangle\nOf kisses that the gods kept so well mingled:\nFor I’d scarcely begun to hide an ardent laugh\nIn one girl’s happy depths (holding back\nWith only a finger, so that her feathery candour\nMight be tinted by the passion of her burning sister,\nThe little one, naïve and not even blushing)\nThan from my arms, undone by vague dying,\nThis prey, forever ungrateful, frees itself and is gone,\nNot pitying the sob with which I was still drunk.’\n\n \n\nNo matter! Others will lead me towards happiness\nBy the horns on my brow knotted with many a tress:\nYou know, my passion, how ripe and purple already\nEvery pomegranate bursts, murmuring with the bees:\nAnd our blood, enamoured of what will seize it,\nFlows for all the eternal swarm of desire yet.\nAt the hour when this wood with gold and ashes heaves\nA feast’s excited among the extinguished leaves:\nEtna! It’s on your slopes, visited by Venus\nSetting in your lava her heels so artless,\nWhen a sad slumber thunders where the flame burns low.\n\nI hold the queen!\n\n \n\n                              O certain punishment…\n\n                                                                No, but the soul\n\nVoid of words, and this heavy body,\nSuccumb to noon’s proud silence slowly:\nWith no more ado, forgetting blasphemy, I\nMust sleep, lying on the thirsty sand, and as I\nLove, open my mouth to wine’s true constellation!\n\n \n\nFarewell to you, both: I go to see the shadow you have become.

mi sembra un poco esagerato con i vari aggettivi tipo fauvismo, barocco di Bologna
Andrea Zagami
Domani ho l'esame su sto babbo XDXDXD Comunque molto bravo , un genio dell' impressionismo musicale , il padre dea musica novecentesca
Andrew Ross
Another Great Composer I like to listen to is Debussy, his music was a lot different from Beethoven, Mozart and Bach and what was different about it was he would add his own different style too it, too make the music sound modern like the music of Ravel and Stravinsky, the Módem Day composers, Debussy was Modern

I always wondered if Debussy and Monet knew each other well. They truly complemented each other. The brilliance of impressionism :)

what a piece... was introduced to this by Moby in an interview he did where he compared the tone of this piece with his My Weakness.

Absolument magique, après que ce soit fini on reste encore sous le charme, merci beaucoup ..... obrigada.
As a child I remember listening to this and being enchanted. I could picture different scenes to it. It took me years to find it. It was on an old cassette tape sampler that wore out and never had the name of it. It's always been my favorite classical piece bar none. It is beyond amazing.
David Badillo
This music is so beautiful I could never use it as background to study... I could never concentrate as the music would just pull me in and get me to that mystifying place and drift away... goosebumps in forearms, neck, everywhere...
All the climax is at 06:05. What a melody there, I feel like crying! And it's just for 10 f*cking beautiful seconds!Hélas!
I'm here because Michael Jackson loved Debussy especially this piece!

I love the music of Debussy. I visited his grave in Passy cemetery in Paris on Sunday May 3.
Hopeson Makokha
I find images painted in my mind. It's a world of dreams, beauty, and uncertainty. This is one the most finest impressionist piece I've ever heard. Debussy is so brilliant at this.

The images Debussy creates are mystical and full of a spirit that is simply the beauty of nature. \nLes images qui crée Debussy sont mystique et plein d'un esprit qui est tout simplement la beauté de la nature.

Most amazing music I have heard in awhile. It really takes you away. How can someone not like this???

Oh my, so beautiful, listening to this I can picture the faun grazing at the forests edge and the butterflies dancing from flower to flower and the breeze filled with the scent of the forest;what a wonderful lazy after noon.......I don't want to leave :D    Thank you for such a wonderful video of all those fantastic paintings to go with such beautiful music.

From the first time I heard it, this has always enchanted me.

Les oeuvres illustrants le prélude sont mal choisies. Debussy s'inspirait des symbolistes et non des impressionnistes.

and so modern music began

I love how the main theme of the piece, that chromatic flute line, stays relatively the same but its context changes depending on what chord the lower voices are playing. Like sometimes it's a major 7th, sometimes it's a major 6th...just formless.

Maravilhosa! Mágico! Inspiradora! Amo!

I am transported to a different realm when I hear this piece. Debussy you magical genius, thank you.
Musique extraordinaire et, du reste, ce morceau  est de loin mon préféré. Je n'aime pas trop le jazz et pourtant il y a dans cette œuvre des connotations indiscutables.
Mina M
The melodie feels like green to me!
There is something magical about this piece. Simply enchanting
Pamela White
I Love this ...sounds magic! like a walk in a magical wood at midnight this is a true Midsummer Night's it
Paul Nicholls-Whitman
I played this for one of my last flute exams.  I have always found this to be so moving, magical and emotional and had to keep myself totally focused on what I was play and to play down the others.  So poignant and memorable, this music even to this day whisks me away to a beautiful place.  An absolute favourite of mine and I always will be.  Merci beaucoup M. Debussy.  E&OA

If everyone set aside ten minutes every morning to sit down and listen to Prelude To The Afternoon Of A Faun, we would live in a better world.

Debussy! Your brilliance is magnificent! You are irreplaceable! You are a man who have his own dimension in music; and we all are blessed with you!

I think the opening part with the flute could have inspired Stravinsky when he was writing \

one of the most beautiful and moving pieces of music I know ... thanks for the beautiful best fitting images :-)

6:05 - 6-20 . I won´t write anything about how beautiful it is cause words can´t decribe it, its is just how it is. Just listen to it.

Thanks very much for this Masterpiece. I knew this Theme only because a 1974 LP of the brazilian keyboardist Eumir Deodato iwho covered this Theme in a personal way

À la cinquième minute mon cœur s'envole c'est tellement magnifique.

Cette musique est parfaite et dépasse son titre à évocation d'un thème païen , ce titre colle avec le goût un peu anecdotique du symbolisme pour l'antiquité qu'il soit biblique , païen mythologique grec ou nordique . Au dela de tout ce magma panthéiste , il subsiste une immense inventivité proche de l'observation de la nature et qui chante la poésie primordiale de la Création , ce qui fait de cette oeuvre un morceau d'anthologie unique ....

So beautiful. What more can one say?
Things get real at 4:18!
The erotic 'breathiness' of the flute, how it seems to pulse, is torrid and shimmering like a hot summer's day uncovering a vision of naked nymphs..

I want this to be played at my funeral ... The emotions encountered in this piece are so varied and can be interpreted in so many ways... I'm in tears every time I listen to it... Truly a masterpiece

Not sure why, but my food tastes even better when Debussy is blasted in my kitchen speakers.!
