These seven pieces are based on seven of the best known fables by Jean de La Fontaine, the great seventeenth century French poet, in translations by the writer Xavier Benguerel Llobet, father of the composer. In this work, the narration alternates with musical illustrations played by a group of ten musicians. The texts of the fables are presented here in Spanish, Catalan, French, and English. A chamber version, prepared by the composer, is also available on hire.
