Narrated by Michel Galabru and Jean Topart with music by Louis Couperin and Robert Visée.
La Fontaine's fables are both beautifully constructed stories and humorous and wise morality tales. They continue to this day to be a much-loved part of the school curriculum in France. Two of France's leading actors, Michel Galabru and Jean Topart, narrate 22 of the best-known fables on the CD. To add to the setting the narration includes background musical accompaniment by contemporary composers of La Fontaine such as Louis Couperin and Robert Visée.
This audio presentation of the fables is must for adults and children alike. (Volume 2, companion CD also available.)
