Autographed partitur (full orchestral) score of the composers’ most popular work “Le Boeuf sur le Toit” (The Bull (or Ox) on the Roof) on the title page.  This is a 1969 edition published by the original publisher Max Eschig in Paris, 72 pages of music, two additional pages and covers.

 

Milhaud (1892-1974) was inspired by a wide variety of music including indigenous music of the places he visited and jazz.  This work which is well heard in concert halls throughout the world and is Milhaud’s most enduring work was inspired by the music he heard on a trip to Brazil in 1919.  Milhaud was impressed by the lushness of the music he heard there.  The composer wove 11 works which inspired him during his time in Brazil and wove them into a neoclassical pastiche utilizing lush strings, native percussion instruments, woodwinds and brass.  The result inspired his fellow Les Six member, Jean Cocteau to choreograph a ballet in 1920.  However, the work is more often performed on the concert stage by orchestras, as a piano duet, a piano solo and even in a chamber arrangement.  The 17 or so minute work is also a great favorite at pops concerts throughout the world.
