Le Bouquet for cor anglais, bassoon and guitar

Description

This gentle and romantic piece, with interweaving melody instruments underpinned by an arpeggiato accompaniment on the guitar, is inspired by Prévert’s poem Le Bouquet.

Que faites-vous là petite fille
Avec ces fleurs fraîchement coupées?
Que faites-vous là jeune fille
Avec ces fleurs ces fleurs séchées?
Que faites-vous là jolie femme
Avec ces fleurs qui se fanent?
Que faites-vous là vieille femme
Avec ces fleurs qui meurent?

J’attends le vainqueur

What are you doing there, little girl,
With those freshly cut flowers ?
What are you doing there, young girl,
With those dried flowers ?
What are you doing there, pretty woman,
With those faded flowers ?
What are you doing there, old woman,
With those dying flowers ?

I’m waiting for the victorious one

The theme, written in the Dorian mode, was originally a vocal setting of the poem itself.
