Aaron Alter, Composer
La Joie de Vivre was inspired by the painting by Picasso of the same name.
That painting shows a Mediterranean scene with mythological figures, such as satyrs and a centaur and a nude woman playing music and dancing.  The music begins in a modal jazz style, but later evolves into folk-rock, blues-rock and finally ends with a folk dance, all of which evoke the spirit of the Picasso painting.

There are two versions.  The Original Version is for flute, violoncello and double-bass.
Version 2 is for flute, violoncello, electric guitar, double-bass (or electric bass) and drums.
