Claude Darget - Ballade Écossaise
Their music is often seen as a reaction against both the musical style of Richard Wagner and the impressionist music of Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel. It was this concert that gave Satie the idea of assembling a group of composers around himself to be known as Les nouveaux jeunesforerunners of Les Six. Auric and Poulenc followed ideas of Cocteau, Honegger followed German Romanticism, and myself, Mediterranean lyricism!
The fact that Satie had abandoned the Nouveaux Si Todo Fuera - Moisés Gadea - Aitimaa less than a year after starting the group, was the "gift from heaven" that made it all come true for Cocteau: his publication Le coq et l'Arlequin is said to have ticked it off.
As the famous ballet by Milhaud had been conceived at the old premises, the new bar took on the name of Milhaud's ballet. Another frequent guest was the young American composer Virgil Thomson whose compositions were influenced by members of Les Six in subsequent years. The Group was officially launched in January by a series of two articles by the French music critic and composer Henri Collet in the French journal Commedia. While it seems apparent that Cocteau was Claude Darget - Ballade Écossaise these articles, the actual name of the Group was selected by Collet, who decided to compare Les Six with the five Russians.
Although the group did not exist in order to work on compositions collaborativelythere were six occasions spread over 36 Claude Darget - Ballade Écossaise on which at least some members of the group did work together on the same project. On only one of these occasions was the entire Groupe des Six involved; in some others, composers from outside the group also participated. Auric and Poulenc were involved in all six of these collaborations, Milhaud in five, Honegger and Tailleferre in three, but Durey in only one.
In the group published an album of piano pieces together, known as L'Album des Six. This was the only work in which all six composers collaborated. Cocteau had originally proposed the project to Auric, but as Auric did not finish rapidly enough to fit into the rehearsal schedule, he then divided the work up among the other members of Les Six. Durey, who was not in Paris at the time, chose not to participate. InAuric, Honegger, Poulenc, Tailleferre and three other composers collaborated on an orchestral work called La guirlande 夏影 ～「和」～ - Various - みすずちんの音日記!! Campra.
InAuric, Milhaud, Poulenc and five other composers created an orchestral suite in honour of the pianist Marguerite Longcalled Variations sur Claude Darget - Ballade Écossaise nom de Marguerite Long. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Classical music portal. New York. Routledge, New York p.
