    Jacques Ibert studied at the Paris Conservatoire before embarking upon a successful composing career. The film Don Quichotte increased his popularity when he composed the musical score in 1933. Controversially, the producers of Don Quichotte asked five composers separately to compose songs for the film. Each composer thought only he had been approached, and when Ibert's music was eventually chosen for the film, it caused him some embarrassment as Maurice Ravel, who had also been approached, was a close friend of his. Chanson de la Mort comes toward the end of the film, when the main character, Don Quichotte, receives a great shock and dies. Addressing a variety of musical aspects and techniques, Ibert's Chanson de la Mort is a challenging yet evocative addition to the bass repertoire.
