Bailero from Songs of the Auvergne Canteloube Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
In the 20th century, Canteloube (1879 - 1957) collected French folk songs, as Vaughn-Williams did in England. His set of songs from the Auvergne is lushly orchestrated, so the simplicity and clarity of the soprano folk song melody contrasts with the complex, but beautiful accompaniment. Bailero is the most well-known song in the set. In it, Canteloube uses cascading strings, glittering harp passages, heaps of suspended 9ths, and an oboe line emulating a shepherd's pipe. It is hugely popular today with audiences the world over, despite the fact that it was severely criticised by Canteloube's contemporaries for not being modern (and therefore probably un-listenable).
