Les Éolides was written in 1876 and premiered the following year. This beautiful music was composed by César Franck, who was inspired by a poem based on the classical myth of Eolus, the Greek god of the wind. In Homer's Odyssey, the Éolides are the breezes which are sent by Poseidon to aid Odysseus in his return voyage. This orchestral poem is set to moving images from nature: the breezes caress fields of grass, gently rustle flowers and trees, and hold aloft the birds of the air. Dedicated to lovers of peace and conservation. Music performed by the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Yan Pascal Tortelier. Video edited by Gilda Tabarez on May 1, 2009.
