Oui, Mon Cher Fufu!, Op. 96 (Flashmob in Honor of Louis de Funes)
Composed by Yuri Povolotsky (2014)
for Wind Quintet and Piano
Published by Forton Music
Duration: 5'30″
Includes score and parts

This piece in one movement was created in 2014, the centenary year of the great French artist's birth. Louis de Funés played a wide range of different roles throughout his career, but ultimately he is remembered as a comic actor. Unlucky gangsters and slow-witted cops, cunning “bourgeois” and successful businessmen, decision-makers and great professionals – that's an incomplete gallery of eccentric characters he created. The music of his numerous films was written by various composers in different styles, that's why there is no coherent musical image that could capture the essence of this great comedian nicknamed “Fufu” in his childhood. Creating his burlesque fantasy, the author was inspired by the sound of the sixties, the most glorious period of de Funés's career. The original work is sprinkled with subtle allusions to some scenes from the films “Fantômas”, “Le Grand Restaurant”, “Oscar”, “L'homme orchestra” and other greatest hits. These five and a half minutes of music could perfectly well be a soundtrack for an imaginary set of images.
