Notes and Editorial Reviews

Jean Derbes (1937-1982) is another rarely heard composer the TIMPANI label has discovered for us. His French Swiss origins resulted in a remarkable body of work. His orchestral works turned away from the formulaic aspects of the avant-garde, whilst also indulging in any "neo-Somethings" of influences. His most haunting and passionate music has perhaps something in common with the Alban Berg Lyric Suite.

Review:

"The present CD presents orchestral works from two periods. 1967-69 and 1979-80, the former are protesting, dramatic with expressionist savagery, including the ballet music, Manu Tara. The later are reduced to the essentials and tend toward unanimity. Derbes also did not spare beauty
Read more of sound, and nothing here indicates a torn and painful sufferer other than the direct comparison of consonance and dissonance."
