Voice and Piano
Composed by Louis Durey (1888-1979). Classical. Book Only. 40 pages. Chester Music #MUSCT03854. Published by Chester Music (BT.MUSCT03854).

Item Number: BT.MUSCT03854

Durey's song-cycle (written for voice and piano or thirteen instruments) is made up of 25 individual songs, each to a text by Guillaume Apollinaire and each very short. Most take just a page or two of music, and contain just a line or two of verse. The concept of the work is nearly identical to that of Camille Saint-Saens' Carnival of the Animals: each song of Le Bestiare describes an individual animal.
