Kids Commute - Dolly Week! Monday

Jan 21, 2019

Gabriel Faure in the 1890's

Welcome to a fresh week of music on Kids Commute from Interlochen Public Radio. As you know, a new week means a new theme, and a new Quizlet! This week we’re listening to a suite of music composed by French composer, Gabriel Fauré, born in 1845.

The “Dolly” Suite, was written for four-hand piano (also known as a duet), and is made up of six short pieces. In today’s episode, we’ll get some background information on the Dolly that Fauré was writing about, and hear music written for Dolly’s first birthday. Plus, we’ll introduce this week’s Quizlet. Do you think you can get the answer without any hints? If you text us the correct answer, we’ll send you a Kids Commute Prize Pack. Don’t worry if you don’t get it right away, you can keep trying!
