About Promenade avec J.J. Rousseau

Plays with excerpts of the Devin du Village

Promenade avec Jean-Jacques Rousseau plays with excerpts of the Devin du Village (1752), instrumented, arranged and composed for strings. Played for the king, in Fontainebleau in 1752,  Le Devin du Village [The Diviner of the Village] gained a considerable success and maintained for more than a half-a-century Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s reputation as a composer. It is a pleasant lyrical pastorale which charm essentially relates to the melodic invention. Inspired in the same manner Stravinsky treated Pergolese’s music in his Pulcinella, I conceived the Promenade using eight fragments of the Devin du Village, always quoted in their original key.
