Une Nuit qu’on entendait la Mer sans la voir
Une nuit qu’on entendait la Mer sans la voir is taken from Victor Hugo’s collection Les voix intérieures, published in 1837.
The poet recounts a seascape on a stormy evening; it seems to be the storm he witnessed in June 1836.
The sea wind blows in its horn.
These lines are repeated like a refrain throughout the poem, as if the poet wanted to personify the wind.
I was overwhelmed by this battlefield of the sea, the immensity of the sea, the raging elements, all images that fascinate me.
In my music, I’ve treated the depth of feeling that comes from being a spectator of such events.
