Poulenc The Story of Babar - Debussy, the box of toys - Ridout, Ferdinand the Bull
Summary: In 1940, Poulenc yields to the demands of a little cousin to play him the music of Babar, the Little Elephant famous invented in 1930 by Cecile de Brunhoff. The score for piano and reciting it is considered since then enters as one of his masterpieces. Sometimes soft and playful, sometimes melancholy and dreamy, these pages awaken an emotion whose charm is still operating. Laurence Ferrari made ??its debut on Virgin Classics as narrator of Babar and two other works for children, surrounded by pianist Jérôme Ducros and violinist Renaud Capuçon, for this recording that opens the doors of the dream. The toy box by Claude Debussy, music of a puppet ballet, seduced by its freshness and humor "that fuse into laughter as well as in tears" as noted by a contemporary critic. Debussy sends a singular intensity to these inhabitants of the enchanted world of toys, before the dazzled eyes of the child. The Story of Ferdinand, a children's book in 1936 imagined by the author Munro Leaf and illustrated by Robert Lawson, was set in 1971 by music composer Alan Ridout UK under the title Ferdinand the bull, for violin and narrator, after a pretty inspired Walt Disney cartoon. With its view of the universe amused animals alongside men, music by Alan Ridout renews reading this touching tale. The figure of this little rebellious and romantic bull that opposes the ritual sacrifice of Bullfight, attracted young and old as it reveals the truth about the links between man and beast in the fulfillment of desires and self-claim
