Le Printemps (Claude Lejeune)

Concert

Often mentioned, often analysed (notably by Olivier Messiaen) but rarely heard, Claude Lejeune’s Le Printemps was brazenly modern for its time. It marked the emergence of a style in which rhythm and its effects were of prime importance: musique mesurée à l'antique, based on the alternation of long and short notes, imitating the feet in the lines of verse – verse by Antoine de Baïf, the major exponent of the poetical form known as vers mesurés (an attempt to recreate the metrical effect of ancient Greek and Latin poetry in French). Le Printemps, a perfect illustration of the connection between music and poetry, caused a stir in its day, but its influence was considerable.
Doulce Mémoire aims to bring out all the immediacy and rhythmic power of this music, which still sounds modern today.
