Faure’s piano duet entitled “Dolly Suite” is here arranged by Philip Le Bas for a wind quintet with a difference: the clarinettist is asked play bass clarinet in three of the six pieces. This gives the music more sonority and it allows the arranger more opportunity to bring out Faure’s sumptuous harmonies. “Dolly” was the nickname of the baby daughter of Emma Bardac, with whom Faure had a long-running affair, and each of the pieces has a slightly different association with childhood.
1) The “Berceuse” (lullaby) is best remembered as the theme tune to the BBC’s “Listen with Mother”, and its tune is indelibly marked into the memories of generations of radio listeners between 1950 and 1982. It was written for Dolly’s first birthday. (An alternative part for clarinet in A is available for this movement, to avoid the otherwise slightly tricky key signature of F sharp major!)
2) “Mi-a-ou” has nothing to do with cats, but is a version of Dolly’s first attempts to pronounce the name of her brother Raoul. Written for her second birthday, it is a delicate and playful scherzo with lots of cross-rhythms for the instruments.
3) “Le Jardin de Dolly” is regarded by some as the best piece in the collection, with its gorgeous tune and unexpected harmonies, creating an impressionistic picture of a beautiful, peaceful French garden.
4) “Kitty-Valse” again has nothing to do with cats but with the family dog “Ketty”, who whirls round and round, in unrelenting cheerfulness.
5) In “Tendresse” Faure introduces more chromatic harmonies, used in his later works. As its name and its key of D flat suggests, the music here seems to express deep and shifting emotions associated with intimate relationships, while retaining a sense of calm and comfort throughout.
6) The last piece, “Le Pas Espagnole” is a thrilling journey across the border into the exotic Spanish world of dance. There is much in common with Chabrier’s “Espana”, and here the wind players can enjoy playing at “full tilt” in an exciting and tuneful end to the suite.

“Berceuse” is often referred to as a ‘cradle song’ or ‘lullaby’ and represents a composition that used to be played to put a baby to sleep. The piece above is such a song written by the French composer Gabriel Fauré between 1893 and 1896. Fauré’s “Berceuse” is the most popular part of his “Dolly Suite” which is a 15-minute set of 6 short pieces dedicated to the life of his mistresses’ daughter called Dolly. “Berceuse” (originally titled as ‘La Chanson dans le Jardin’) is the first composition of the collection, it’s dedicated to the girl’s 1st birthday. Other popular Berceuse pieces were composed by Chopin, Brahms, Gounod, Ravel and many other outstanding composers. The sheet music to these pieces can also be downloaded in MusicaNeo catalogue.

Gabriel Faure
Dolly Suite No.1 Opus 56 Berceuse
Duet for Two Guitars Arranged & annotated for Classical Guitars by Vincent F. Coley

The Berceuse, was a very early piece, composed in 1864 for Suzanne Garnier, the daughter of a family friend. In 1893 Fauré made some small amendments and changed its title from "La Chanson dans le jardin" to "Berceuse" (cradle song).

Although it was written as a piano duet, there have been numerous arrangements of the Berceuse for other instruments and ensembles. Examples include versions for piano and glockenspiel by Evelyn Glennie and for two guitars recorded by Julian Bream and John Williams.

The Berceuse was the signature theme for the long-running BBC Home Service programme Listen with Mother.
