Description
Instrumental arrangement of my "classical-folk crossover" setting of Prévert's poem "Pour faire le portrait d'un oiseau" (To paint the portrait of a bird).
Prévert indicates that you can never capture the real essence of a bird.
You can paint a cage, a tree branch for it to sing on,
but you have to wait for the actual bird itself to
enter your painting - only then can you sign your painting,
using a feather from that bird.
The music has a Dorian feel - ie with a minor third and seventh
but often with a raised sixth.
I have provided full score and separate parts in which the melody
instrument part has chord names, to enable the guitarist to read
along with the melody instrument player and opt for interpretations
other than the notated version (eg strumming, rasgueado etc).

The sound sample is an electronic preview.
