Could any list of classical cat music be complete without Hugo Wolf's "Mouse-Catching Rhyme"? Now that I've heard of it, I think not. And that's thanks to Fred Flaxman, of "Compact Discoveries with Fred Flaxman."
I recently discovered the online transcripts of his two-part program, "A CATalog of Music." Here's just a few of the treats listed therein:
- Gabriel Fauré: Mi-a-ou from Dolly Suite
- Eric Satie: Song of the Cat
- Ernst Dohnány: Cats on the Roof
- Aaron Copland: I Bought Me a Cat
- Ernesto Lecuona: Black Cat
Pretty intriguing, huh? Go have a look (and a listen, if you sign up for the particular audio platform they have). A CATalog of Music part I, followed by part II.
