An arrangement of one of the songs from The Little Prince
, a fabulous, moving and melodic opera by Rachel Portman with luxurious counter melodies and placid harmonies.
This opera is based on French philosopher and aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupery's novella, Le Petit Prince, an international classic penned in 1943.
It was composed by Rachel Portman, the first woman to win an Oscar for a film score (Emma-1996), with text by Nicholas Wright.
While Saint-Exupery's moving parable of self-discovery is the foundation of the opera's appeal, it is Portman's music that gives the work its dramatic impact. The characters are brought to life and portrayed with a delicate combination of humour and poignancy.
This SSA and Piano arrangement of The Birds by Richard Allain.
