Dolly by : Christiane Strucken-Paland : Gabriel Faure
The six pieces in this little suite were written between 1893 and 1896. They were inspired by Hélène Bardac; the daughter of a singer with whom he was friends. The girl was born in 1892 and called “Dolly” on account of her small; delicate figure. The pieces; composed mainly for her birthday or the New Year; reflect the world as experienced by the growing child; from a lullaby to a temperamental dance. But it was not meant to be taken too seriously; as shown by the subtle allusions to his own music and that of others. Despite their simple basic structure these pieces; which soon became popular; contain numerous harmonic and rhythmic subtleties typical of the French composer - “children's music” that is also well suited to adults.
