'The river god laughs as the water tickles him' in Ravel's shimmering Jeux d'eau, and Colleen depicts a crystalline kind of late autumn alongside a bit of toybox gamelan from Cage.
‘The river god laughs as the water tickles him’ in Ravel's shimmering masterpiece Jeux d'eau, Colleen depicts a crystalline kind of late autumn in her piece November, and there's a little bit of toybox gamelan from John Cage. There's also Tatyana's fluttering heart as she writes her letter to Onegin, a dancing Tarantella by Gaspar Sanz, and the Symphony in G of 'black Mozart' Joseph Bologne de Saint-Georges. Then Lotte Lenya despairs at Kurt Weill's international playboy Surabaya Johnny, and Monteverdi reworks a lucent early Renaissance masterpiece.
