On this double CD of the series «Listen the reading…» , five comedians of La Comédie Française – Clothilde de Bayser, Thierry Hancisse, Eric Ruf, Laurent Stocker et Florence Viala – tell the same story ninety-nine times, in ninety-nine different ways, accompanied by sixty-three small music pieces for clarinet(s) and piano. Here are seven samples.
