Howard Blake about his piano piece "Briedel les Vaches":

"I collaborated with the famous Canadian animator Richard Williams during the early 1970s, notably scoring the famous credit sequence of ‘Pink Panther strikes back’ for Hank Mancini who for some reason couldn’t make it over from Hollywood to London. Soon after this Dick asked me to compose a score for an advertising film for a Belgian milk company , Briedel, intended subtly to inform the public that milk is good for you and that their company stretched right across Europe. It featured two cows dancing and I suggested scoring a version of the EU ‘national anthem’, Beethoven’s ‘Ode to Joy’ which transforms into a delicate waltz as the cows happily dance together.

BRIEDEL LES VACHES is therefore: Music for an animated film by Richard Williams Composed by Howard Blake Originally scored for Two clarinets, horn,violin, viola, violoncello, contrabass, piano and percussion Specially transcribed for piano June 2017 for your Beethoven 250 project.“
