Leader, ALFRED CAVE
Conducted by LESLIE HEWARD
Mozart wrote his music for the ballet Les Petits Riens (a fanciful affair about three adventures of Cupid), whan, at twenty-two, he was trying his fortune in Paris. He collaborated with Noverre, the great ballet master, and the pretty music of this slight work was the result. In all, there were thirteen tiny pieces in it. The Ballet was produced in 1778 and after that the music was lost for nearly a hundred years. Then in J872, Victor Wilder, one of Mozart's biographers, found it in the Library of the Paris Opera.
