Le Lièvre et la Tortue
What a delight to write music to this lovely fable. Writing for children’s choirs is always a tricky business.
It has to be easy for them to get into the music, despite the difficulties of intonation and rhythm, and above all, they have to be happy doing it.
That’s why I treated the hare, the tortoise and the commentator in 3 different groups, 3 different characters, as I would have done for a chamber opera. In fact, it’s a miniature opera that can be embellished with a little staging. But of course, if the chorus is a small, restricted group, this score can be sung without group division.
I hope they will enjoy singing this music as much as I enjoyed writing it.
