Charlie Chaplin and Gabriel Fauré are an unlikely pair. One is English, the other French; one is a slapstick-meets-pathos perfectionist and the other a brilliant composer of harmonic and melodic innovation. However, they both compose exquisite music. We chose to create one of our signature arrangements by mixing and matching these two beautiful songs.
We highlight the elegance of the Pavane within the heartbreaking poetry of Smile.
The Pavane is a short work by the French composer Gabriel Fauré named after the slow, processional Spanish court dance of the same name.
Smile is a song so fitting for challenging times as it beckons for us to cheer up because there is always a brighter tomorrow.
