Mallarmé was saying about a Gaugin’ paiting It’s wonderful to obtain so mysterious climax with so strong dash. The three Images capitalize successively on transcendental Spanish echoes, impressions, lights, agonies of grays gently tinted of white, and at last the movement dancing rhythms, radiant dust participating to a total rhythm indicated Debussy. Rosenthal and the musicians of the Paris Opera are the most respectful performers of Rondes de printemps, Ansermet with the Suisse Romance of the luminous, juveline (?) world of La Boîte à joujoux.
