D’un Matin De Printemps by Lili Boulanger
Arranged for flute/piccolo, oboe/cor anglais and piano by Jeremy Polmear and Michael Bell.
Piano score and parts
D’un Matin de Printemps (One Spring Morning) exists in a number of chamber versions – for Piano Trio, Flute & Piano, Violin & Piano; it is unclear how much these are by Lili herself or by her sister Nadia. This adaptation is drawn from the orchestral score, celebrating the composer’s brilliant orchestral effects by augmenting the existing flute, piccolo, oboe and cor anglais parts, with the remainder taken up by the piano. This delightful piece gives an impression of the feeling of a Spring morning, the predominant mood being joyful anticipation.
