No standard suite from Sylvia, with its richly scored and charming melodies, has quite fallen into place and today's recordings generally draw from complete traversals of the ballet.
The Prelude begins as a bombastic processional, but it pulls up almost in mid-phrase and becomes a nocturnal forest fantasy, with quiet, distant horn calls providing the basis of lyrical material for winds and strings.
Next comes a playful, rustic episode featuring flutes and other woodwinds, with a tender sub-interlude inserted in the middle of the Sylvia. Suite De Bailado Para Orquestra - Léo Delibes. The Prelude, really just a potpourri of good tunes, concludes with a restatement of the opening processional. A second section offers a skipping little tune, with short string phrases answered by the winds.
A more vigorous passage brings back the fanfare material. The central section is louder and more sweeping, but the entire piece relies more heavily on the strings than any other section of the orchestra. The "Danse or Pas des Ethiopiens" ostensibly concerns the denizens of Africa, but the pow-wow beat and chirpy descending tune more strongly evoke Native Americans, at least as they were interpreted by outsiders. More Meyerbeer material -- this could also work in the "Triumphal March" from Verdi 's Aida -- leads into a section that dallies with fragments of the March and ends with a grand restatement of the Prelude's opening theme.
