- Harp and Flute
Composed by Ernest Chausson (1855-1899). Arranged by John McCabe
Chausson wrote some interludes for flute and harp for a production of Aristophanes' The Birds, performed at Le Petit Theatre de la Galerie Vivienne, Paris, in 1889. At the request of Emily Beynon, working from the original manuscript, which is held in the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris, John McCabe has made a single concert piece using some of this incidental music, a kind of continuous suite rather than a single movement.
