History

  • What exactly Legley composed this music for is not entirely clear. It seems that the music was used on 30 March 1955 for a stage play of the same name by Ermano Maccario on television.[1]
  • This music was composed between 1953[2] and 23 March 1955[3].

Notes

  1. Karel De Schrijver (Levende componisten uit Vlaanderen. Tweede deel. De jongere generatie van 1900 - ±1920, Leuven, 1955, p.138) calls it a television play (see footnote 2). See also the television column in Le Soir of 30 March 1955 (p.10).
  2. K. De Schrijver (ibidem): Nieuwe werken sedert 1953 zijn: [...] muziek voor het Franse T.V.-spel Le temps est compté, enz... [New works since 1953 are: [...] music for the French T.V. play Le temps est compté, etc.]
  3. On a sheet in the folder with the parts in the music library of the former NIR (now kept in the Brussels Conservatory, see sources) it reads: part. à M. Doneux 23.3.55. The last note on this sheet is: part. à V. Legley.
