Work Introduction

This piece, dedicated to Countess Elisabeth Greffulhe, whose pavana is meant to be a kind of portrait in music, was composed in 1887. At the request of the dedicatee, Fauré himself added the chorus part. In this reduction most of the orchestral sounds have been preserved thanks to the instrumentation. The harp, an instrument totally absent from the original version, is used moderately so as not to overly alter the original sonorities conceived by the author. The arrangement can be executed, like the original version, with the addition of the choir.
