The melody “La Fustemberg” was very popular in Paris after 1770. I have found another work with variations on La Fustemberg for harpsichord in the bnf – this might be interesting too:

Duo Conversa – Lydie Barrancos (Flute) and Pascal Bournet…

I have recently found a note about the Duo Conversa at twitter. The Duo Conversa is composed of Lydie Barrancos (flute) and Pascal Bournet (guitar). The duo plays music from South America and from Ireland, a great selection with good arrangements.

With its original repertoire of creations and arrangements around themes from the whole world, Conversa offers you a journey throughout flute’s and guitar’s tones.

The flute, instrument of all times, and the guitar, intrument of all continents, bring into echo the multiplicity of the world cultures’ original sounds.

Conversa will accompany us in an authentic and universal dialogue and then will echo in each of us the emotional world of us all.

Pascal Bournet has arranged all the pieces for flute and guitar. Most of the pieces have been published and are available, you can find the details on his website. Some of the pieces have been composed byPatrick Bournet, the brother of Pascal and a guitarist as well.

In the youtube channel of Pascal Bournetyou can also find some interesting pieces for clarinet and guitar as well as solo pieces for the guitar and duos for two guitars.

Pirate Heart and Ukulele – Coeur De Pirate &…

The Canadian singer Coeur de Pirate (pirate heart) has sung the song Umbrella together with Julien Doré in thr French TV Show Taratata.

This is a great example of a song that is accompanied by just a ukulele.

Coeur De Pirate & Julien Doré “Umbrella” // “Pour Un Infidèle” (Live On Taratata Juin 2009)

Les duos et reprises de Taratata sont l’occasion unique pour les interprètes de revisiter un titre d’un autre répertoire. Julien Doré, familier de l’exercice, s’était associé avec la chanteuse Coeur de Pirate (Béatrice Martin) pour rejouer au ukulélé le titre phare de Rihanna : “Umbrella”.

Wikipedia about Taratata:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taratata

Artists including Devendra Banhart, Katie Melua, and Ayo made their French TV debut on the show. The show’s chief lighting technician, Jean-Philippe Bourdon, was awarded two Sept d’or in 1994 and 1995.

The show features unique duets and highlights new artists and uses different presenters for each episode. These aspects, and the general emphasis on original music, led the Conseil supérieur de l’audiovisuel to identify Taratata as a uniquely creative show on French TV in April 2009.
