It is interesting to note that this music was orignally written for the film 'Cavalcade d'Amour' which dealt with the subject of love in three different time periods: the Middle Ages, the 19th Century, and the 20th century. Milhaud wrote this music for the first segment of the film and the balance was composed by Honegger and Desmormiere. There is an expression which has been adopted from the French Language - "Se Chauffer a la cheminee du roi Rene" which translates literally "to warm one's self at King Rene's chimney" and really means "to bask in the sun.".

    Modern but highly accessible and a delight to play. And you can't go wrong with anything composed by Milhaud.

  • March 22, 2007 For serious woodwind quintet players.

    This piece is an integral part of woodwind quintet repertoire. Look forward to appreciating the depth of the writing as the performance improves with each rehearsal.
