Severac Piano Pieces

If all we had of Déodat de Séverac's music was the short piece entitled Cemetary in Spring, we should be eternally in his debt for a new emotion, an emotion arising from the moving encounter between the idea of eternal rest and the great desire to live

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Alfred Cortot wrote, "If all we had of Déodat de Séverac's music was the short piece entitled Coin de cimetière au printemps, we should be eternally in his debt for a new emotion. An emotion arising from the moving encounter between the idea of eternal rest and that of the great desire which maintains life."

Coin de cimetière was composed 1903-04, the fourth movement in the suite En Languedoc. Séverac sent a copy to Debussy in 1905. That year, in another correspondence, Debussy wrote: “his music feels good, and one breathes with a full heart.” Some have noted that the Coin de cimetiere resembles Les pas sur la niege; Debussy's Book I of Preludes came out 1910.

Marie Joseph Alexandre Déodat de Sévérac, Baron de Sévérac; born at Saint-Félix-de-Caraman, Haute-Garonne, July 20, 1872, died Céret, Pyrénées-Orientales, Roussillon, March 24, 1921. He spent several years in Paris (roomed for a time with Picasso - there’s a drawing!), was recognized by his peers as a unique voice, published a small body of work of very high quality, served four years in the great war, returned to his native Languedoc and after his death, quickly faded to obscurity. He was known as a brilliant improvisor, lost four of his most productive years in WWI, and thus depriving us all of a unique and captivating voice. He wrote music which was impressionistic (En languedoc), regional (Cerdaña), reminiscent of the clavecinists. There are two operas, a Tantum Ergo which is sometimes performed, and for many years his claim to fame was completing Navarra, after his dear friend Albeniz’s death.
