  • Notes & Instrumentation

    Wit, warmth, charm, beautiful melody, vivacity; all of these, and more are abundantly evident. No wonder Jeux d'enfants has been rated as "a little masterpiece." Each of the three included movements is complete within itself and playable separately; together the contrasting styles and moods create an attractive Concert Suite.

    Program Notes
    Jeux d'enfants was originally written in 1871 as a Suite of twelve pieces for piano duet. Two years later, Bizet scored five of the pieces for orchestra to create a Petite Suite.

    Each movement shows Bizet's enormous skill as a miniaturist, the music exuding a concentration of power and atmosphere. Wit, warmth, charm, beautiful melody, vivacity; all of these, and more are abundantly evident. No wonder Jeux d'enfants has been rated as "a little masterpiece."

    Three of the movements are included in this arrangement.

    Each is complete within itself and playable separately; together the contrasting styles and moods create an attractive Concert Suite.

    1) Marche - Trompette and Tambour (Trumpet and Drum)
    2) Duo - Petit Mari, Petite Femme (Little Husband, Little Wife)
    3) Galop - Le Bal (The Ball)
