La Rochelle: Preparing to Depart; Museum Images To Take Away; Assez vu, Assez connu?



Britten/Rimbaud: Les Illuminations - Départ

  
Départ

Assez vu. La vision s'est rencontrée à tous les airs.

Assez connu. Les arrêts de la vie. — Ô Rumeurs et Visions !
Départ dans l'affection et le bruit neufs !
