Hector Berlioz

Les nuits d'ete (Summer Nights)

English Versions of Gautier's Poems ©2009 by Edward Lein; all rights reserved. Please notify and credit if reprinting.

Program Notes These are meant as poetical renderings of the texts (not as exact, word-for-word translations), adapting Gautier's poetic schemes and the conventions of the time (Berlioz wrote his songs in 1847) as best I could -- but this is not at all meant as a "singable" version to fit Berlioz's music.
