About “Pelléas et Mélisande”

This orchestral suite is taken from incidental music that Fauré composed for Maurice Maeterlinck’s play of the same name. The music for the play was composed on a tight deadline, but after it was over, the composer organized it into a concert overture. It premiered in Paris in 1901, with Camille Chevillard conducting. The suite is divided into four parts:

  1. Prélude
  2. Fileuse
  3. Sicilienne
  4. Mort de Mélisande
