Cricket and Snail's third CD features music from a variety of theatrical genres,
including opera, operetta, early 20th-century musicals and film. It also
includes a suite from their original soundtrack to the Jean Renoir silent
film “La Petite Marchande D’allumettes” (1928). Rounding out the program
are two originals, Snail’s evocative “Circus Scenes” and Cricket’s “Song
About Joy” that musically depicts her poetic dialogue:
“Who are you, beautiful girl, and where do you come from-
From countries far, the ends of the Earth?”
“I live much closer than you think. You are the one that gives
me breath or smothers me.
I am in your heart and, if you let me, I will sprout...
I will flow like a little brook and flood you like a river!”
May this theatrical music sweep you away to many places in your imagination
and bring you great joy!
