La toupie from Jeux d'enfants 'The top'

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Georges Bizet provides pieces that are not so much ‘for children’ as ‘about childhood’. The top, an impromptu, is No 2 of Jeux d’enfants, a set of twelve pieces for piano duet composed in 1871, and is heard here in the piano solo arrangement by Lucien Garbon.
