Over time, the memory of Eugene Ysaye (Liege, 1858 - Brussels, 1931) the brilliant virtuoso gradually supplanted that of Ysaye the composer in the public consciousness. It should be remembered that Eugene Ysaye created in his poems for string instruments a totally new and original genre, distinguishing himself by a competence in writing and a harmonic richness that were far removed from the purely virtuosic merits of his early compositions. These poems are therefore thoroughly deserving of rediscovery. In a way, they form a sort of link between the Germanic and French aesthetic traditions, a reconciliation between German romanticism and French impressionism.
