Berceuses du chat. Suite de chants pour une voix de femme et trois clarinettes. Mis en Français par C.-F. Ramuz. Partition d’Ensemble.

First edition of Stravinsky’s settings of four traditional Russian folk songs: ‘Spi kot’ (‘Sur le poêle’), ‘Kot na pechi’ (‘Intérieur’), ‘Bai-bai’ (‘Dodo’), and ‘U kota kota…’ (‘Ce qu’il a, le chat…’). The settings, for alto voice and three clarinets, were composed in 1915-16 when Stravinsky was in exile in Switzerland. They are similar in style to his ‘Pribaoutki’ (‘Nonsense rhymes’) of 1914, and are dedicated to Natalia Goncharova and Michel Larionov. The front cover is signed and dated ‘Igor Strawinsky, Dec. 1917’.
