La nixe JS 138 (canción), para narrador, soprano y trío con piano de Jean Sibelius

In this song from the melodrama La nixe (1888), Jean Sibelius wanted to musically describe a mythological water goblin, evoking its smiling character with a waltz rhythm and the sound of its lute with arpeggiated musical figures.
