To be discovered urgently, Les Djinns, a work for mixed voice choir composed by Gabriel Faurè on a poem by Victor Hugo:
Work composed in 1875 by Gabriel Fauré. It is a masterful work for choir with orchestral or piano accompaniment.
Victor Hugo's poetry, just as masterful, is written like an immense crescendo-decrescendo.
The free versification seems to draw this ascent towards the culminating point represented by the horrible swarm that descends on the house.
The alto voice begins and ends the work very piano like in a terrified breath. This work is a major chord between a poet and a musician.
Poem by Victor Hugo, set to music for mixed 4-part choir (SATB) and orchestra or piano :
