Opus 51 n° 1

History

  • Legley completed this work on 4 July 1957.
  • It seems as if Legley wrote this poem for a composition competition: both the autograph score and the autograph violin part have the number 15 added in red pencil, and on the violin part Legley wrote: devise: Point n'est besoin d'esperer [sic] pour entreprendre, ni de reussir [sic] pour persévérer. Possibly, the same sentence was originally written on the score as well: on its first page something has clearly been erased. Legley seems to have added his name and the opus number to the score at a later date.

Notes

  1. The autograph violin part says piano ou orchestre, however, an orchestral version could not be traced down, presumably, Legley's idea of orchestrating the piece has never been realised. See also Poème du printemps.
