Gabriel Faur√©‚Äôs La Naissance de V√©nus was praised by the weekly music journal Le M√©nestrel, at the time of its premiere with piano at the Salle √Črard in 1883, for its ‚Äėextremely poetic colouring‚Äô. It is presented in this programme together with Diane, a ‚Äėpo√®me antique‚Äô by Benjamin Godard (1880) and Hylas, a sc√®ne lyrique by Th√©odore Dubois (1890). Venus, Diana and Hylas: three legendary characters who, over the centuries, have never ceased to inspire composers and librettists.
