Syrinx is undoubtedly part of the works that are immediately associated with Debussy. Entitled La Flûte de Pan at the time of its creation, this piece was composed in 1913 as stage music for a dramatic poem by Gabriel Mourey. In the central stage, Pan plays the reed flute, an instrument in which the nymph Syrinx has been transformed. However, it is not visible other nymphs and the viewer. In order to best reproduce the scene, the dedicatee, Louis Fleury, used to perform the play behind a screen. The work was published posthumously in 1927 by the publisher Jobert. It enjoys today an unprecedented popularity.
