Repertory of musical adaptations
Partial list of adaptations of songs and musical pieces including several metadata about the piece and about the authorities (natural or legal persons) who wrote them (author or composer) or performed them, the language of interpretation, the date of creation, the place of birth of authors, composers and performers, and various other historical information. For example, the repertory reveals that the nursery rhyme “Frère Jacques” has been adapted into more than 100 languages (including an interpretation in Klingon) since its creation at the end of the 18th century. The song “Lindberg”, for its part, has been adapted into English and Italian. “Y'a-tu d'la bière icitte” is an adaptation of a song from an 1890 musical comedy, itself adapted from a piece composed and performed in a brothel in Missouri, in 1880. Purpose: To create a universal repertoire of musical adaptations in an open and linked format.
