Dolly Suite

There are not many orchestral versions of this work, it is a beautiful melodious and lyrical piece. The set is dedicated to Hélène Bardac ("Dolly"), daughter of the singer, Emma Bardac, with whom Fauré enjoyed a brief relationship in the 1890s. Mme. Bardac would go on to become the second wife of Claude Debussy in 1905; Debussy composed his own homage to domesticity, the Children's Corner Suite, for their daughter together, Claude-Emma. Hélène and her family are at the center of the Dolly Suite, which begins with "Berceuse," a peaceful nursery song. "Mi-a-ou"—sometimes taken to be a playful evocation of a cat—was originally intended as a portrait of Hélène's brother Raoul (the title comes from Hélène's attempt to pronounce her brother's name). Fauré wrote the third movement, "Le jardin de Dolly," as a New Year's present for Hélène in 1895. The sly "Kitty Valse" was likewise a present for her, this time for her birthday in 1896. The "Kitty" of the title is brother Raoul's pet dog. The Suite concludes with the romantic "Tendresse" and a spirited bit of Spanish music, "Le pas espagnol."
