The CD contains Jean La Fontaine’s seven most famous fables, with music by Xavier Benguerel. Throughout the narrative, the music accompanies the text: it anticipates what is to come and illustrates the content. The instruments serve to highlight the characteristics that La Fontaine so wisely attributes to his animals: the bassoon portrays the wisdom of the Fox, the oboe, the terrible way the Mosquito stings the Lion and so on.
This CD is a new addition to Tritó’s Solfa la Redonda series. The Cadaqués Orchestra Ensemble is accompanied on this occasion by Gonzalo de Castro as narrator.
