Description: The Symbolist exaltation of youth, beauty and death hangs like a heavy, intoxicating perfume over these works by a young composer who had his first case of pneumonia by the age of 12 and was to die of tuberculosis at 36. This one, from 1903-05 (14 pieces), was composed during and after Dupont's recovery from the first onslaught of his disease. The ten- piece "The House in the Dunes" (1910) which shows the composer's fixation with death, his suffering and his dreams of an unclouded life will likely follow. Giuseppe Taccogna (piano).
