¥ The Bestiary or "The Procession of Orpheus" was written by Poulenc in 1919. ¥ Originally for voice and piano, with poems by Guillaume Apollinaire, the six short movements (about 5 minutes in length) are about the follow animals: Dromedary Goat Grasshopper Dolphin Crayfish Carp ¥ This music is very suitable for young performers at the intermediate level and is a great way to introduce them to a major 20th century composer whose only other music for brass is the famous Trio for Trumpet, Horn and Trombone.
