Imagine the music of twelve sublime poems by Baudelaire, chosen from a few hundred other equally fascinating ones. A musical adornment thought out not in the soft or melancholic way which often illustrates the texts of a poetic nature, but rather in an intense, passionate, tumultuous way, in the mood of what was the temperament of the author of Les Fleurs du Mal, cursed poet par excellence, or, one might say: whom an excellence in the insubordination transformed into a cursed poet.
