Songs of the Auvergne (includes Bailero)
Up 18. Canteloube is a Hall of Fame One Hit Wonder.
When he was living in Paris, Canteloube founded his own offshoot of the Paris auvergne society which he called the Bourée a group of like-minded artists keen to keep the music and arts of the auvergne region alive. For Canteloube, however, there was the peasant's way of enjoying folk songs and then there was the artist's way. He felt that his Songs of the Auvergne fell very much into this latter category, with their rich orchestrations and sumptuous harmonies. They were in fact a million miles away from some of the simple 'melody and musette' settings he transcribed and published.
