Tune of the Day: La mer est infinie

by Gabriel Fauré, transcribed for flute and piano

“La mer est infinie” (“The sea is infinite”) is the first of four mélodies composed in 1921 by Gabriel Fauré as part of his song cycle L'horizon chimérique, Op. 118. The cycle is based on four of the poems from the collection of the same name by Jean de La Ville de Mirmont.

The sea is infinite and my dreams are mad.
The sea sings to the sun while beating the cliffs
and my light dreams are no longer content
to dance on the sea like drunken birds.
