Gabriel Fauré – Pavane in F-sharp minor, Op. 50.



The Pavane in F-sharp minor, Op. 50, is a composition for orchestra and optional chorus by the French composer Gabriel Fauré, written in 1887. Obtaining its rhythm from the slow processional Spanish court dance of the same name, the Pavane ebbs and flows from a series of harmonic and melodic climaxes, conjuring a cool, somewhat haunting, Belle Époque elegance. The piece is scored for only modest orchestral forces consisting of strings and one pair each of flutes, oboes, clarinets, bassoons, and horns. A typical performance lasts around seven minutes.

Envy consists in seeing things never in themselves, but only in their relations. If you desire glory, you may envy Napoleon, but Napoleon envied Caesar, Caesar envied Alexander, and Alexander, I daresay, envied Hercules, who never existed.

Rogue Waves

Rogue waves were once thought to be the stuff of sailors’ lore, but scientists have since established that these ostensibly unpredictable, abnormally large ocean surface waves are indeed real. Though similar in appearance to tsunamis, rogue waves are an entirely different phenomenon. Tsunamis are often preceded by an undersea earthquake, but rogue waves spring up without warning in seemingly calm waters, often far out at sea. What famously ill-fated ship may have been the victim of a rogue wave? More…Discuss
