Préludes, Livre 2 (Debussy, Claude)
Ondine is the eighth of 12 preludes in Debussy ‘s second set of preludes. The story, of course, concerns a water nymph whose deadly powers prove lethal to the mortal who betrays her love. Ravel had depicted this same fairy tale in the second movement of his piano work Gaspard de la nuit, but in a much more elaborate and complex manner.
Some have suggested that Debussy ‘s comparatively simple effort here was a reaction to Ravel ‘s, perhaps in an attempt to vie with or outdo it with a lesser arsenal of expressive means.
Ondine opens in an ethereal mood, but quickly turns playful and whimsical, with notes jumping about and swirling. A lively theme having an arch-like shape in its main subject is then presented. Soon, the music mixes dark with playful elements and gradually develops a sense of tension, though never quite shedding its ethereal cast.
The work closes in playful waves and swirls of notes. Ondine typically lasts around three minutes in performance.
