Chanson des escargots qui vont à l’enterrement d’une feuille morte (Song of the Snails that go to the funeral of a dead leaf) for bassoon duo



Instrumental version of my unpublished vocal duo based on a poem by Jacques Prévert.
The poem relates the tale of two snails who go to the funeral of a dead leaf so slowly that, by the time they arrive, spring has come again
and the sun invites them to be jolly. They drink lustily and go home a little tipsy.

A video of the original vocal duo version, with subtitles,
can be enjoyed on youtube at
