Villanelle for piccolo and piano

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Whilst the composition of more extended movements like those of the Trio was often spread over a number of years, smaller pieces posed Poulenc fewer problems. One such was the Villanelle for piccolo and piano, printed in Pipeaux 1934 – a brainchild of the indefatigable Australian Louise Dyer whose Oiseau-Lyre Paris publications contained seven similar trifles for pipes by Parisian composers of the time.
