Jeux d'enfants, Bizet's last and finest piano work, is one of the gems of piano duet literature. These 12 colorful pieces describe various children's activities. This edition, based on the first edition and the autograph, includes editorial fingering and pedal markings that are clearly differentiated from Bizet's minimal indications. Interesting historical information on Bizet and his music is also included. "La poupée (The Doll)," "La toupee (The Top)," "Le bal (The Dance)," "Les chevaux de bois (The Merry-Go-Round)," and "Saute-mouton (Leap Frog)" are Federation Festivals 2016-2020 selections.
