In 1972, Léo Férré formed an orchestra to return to composing and setting poems to music. After working with poets like Verlaine, Rimbaud, and Aragon, he took on Guillaume Apollinaire’s works, specifically “La Chanson Du Mal-Aimé” from “Alcools,” a wildly lyrical piece about a wandering heart. With a music style akin to Debussy, he focused on capturing atmosphere over lyrics. The result is a moving creation, gradually revealing its depth, blending realism and enchantment with the text. The baroque universe he created invites a sensory journey, turning music into a visual poem. It’s a timeless, beautiful piece, almost beyond words.
