Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Heitor Villa-Lobos' trip to Paris in the '20s proved a great influence on his music, especially in his introduction to the music of Russian composer Igor Stravinsky. On April 9, 1924, the French composer Jean Wiener organized a concert at the Salle des Enseignants, which included the world premiere of Villa-Lobos' Trio for oboe, clarinet, and bassoon. Also influenced by Stravinsky, the work of Jean Francaix was celebrated for its refinement, elegance, and humor. His Divertissement for oboe, clarinet, and bassoon was composed in 1947 for the Trio Andre Dupont. The third composer presented on this CD, Andre Mehmari, is characterized by the ease with which he moves in the fields of both popular and concert music.
