AURIC, GEORGES
SIGNED SCORE. GEORGES AURIC. MARLBOROUGH S'EN VA-T'EN GUERRE! A musical oddity, the piano part for Marlborough s'en va-t'en guerre! [Marlborough Has Left for the War], incidental music for a 1924 play by French writer Marcel Archard. Auric, one of the group of musicians known as Le Six, and who is known for copious film scores, particularly those done by Jean Cocteau, has penned an inscription to French conductor Raymond Charpentier and signed and dated it December 4, 1924 on the dedication page which honors Valentine and Jean Hugo. 28 pages, large 4to. Huegel, 1924. The title itself comes from a French folk song popular during the Revolution; it is claimed that Marie Antoinette sang this song to her son the Dauphin. It is not clear whether the play sticks to the sense of the song and even less clear that Auric would have done so. [ref:6435]
