choir and instrumental ensemble
Commission of the city of Bagnolet, this piece which duration is 12 mn has been written in 1998 and created in June 1989 by the children' s Chorus and the instrumental ensemble of the Conservatory of Bagnolet.
It necessitates a chorus of around 40 children distributed in 8 groups as well as the follow instrumental ensemble :
- 2 flutes
- 1 oboe
- 1 clarinet in B
- 1 trumpet
- 1 alto saxophone
- 2 pianos
- 1 percussionist
It is articulated around a poem very similar to the univers of Jacques Prevert, where humor and dream are joined.
It also offers children a production which requires them to be actors as well as musicians.
More than a pedagogic realization, this work first of all wants to bring emotion, and requires from the children involved real artistic qualities .
