Cats in music! (Videos)

Many composers were (and are) fascinated by cats and some have made music in honour of them.
Here are some examples:

IN OPERA: 


Cat duet 
From the Opera: "The Child and the Spells" (L'enfant et les sortilèges) by Maurice Ravel

(Angelica have sung the white cat at the Norwegian National Opera, the operacats did some of the coaching ;)



IN MUSICALS


An obvious find: "Cats" by Andrew Lloyd Webber



CLASSICAL MUSIC

Humorous duet for two cats
Attributed: Rossini/ Compilated by: de Pearsall


CARTOONS


Evil Siamese in "Lady and the Tramp"



"The Aristocats" practise their arpeggios and scales





Tom is a famous baritone and sings Figaro's aria from Rossini's "The Barber of Seville", Jerry tries to sleep.

  2. Lady and the Tramp - lovely memories from my childhood. All of these were very entertaining!
