This symphonic poem is inspired by Stéphane Mallarmé’s poem L’après-midi d’un faune, of which an historical version by Arnold Schönberg already exists. The substantial difference between these two arrangements is a single instrument of the ensemble: Schönberg's version includes the harmonium in his own instrumentation, while in this version the harmonium is replaced by the French horn. The presence of the French horn gives to this work greater brilliance and fullness of the sound and the orchestral mix. This arrangement is not derived from Schönberg’s version, but from the original orchestrated by Debussy.
