Notes and Editorial Reviews

The camber music works performed here cover the whole of Henri Dutilleux's career. They precede it even, if we take into account that the earliest of them were rejected by the composer himself as not yet being ''his'' music. Indeed, Dutilleux considered his Sonata for Piano to be his opus 1. Nonetheless, it has to be said that though he thoug it regrettable, these pieces composed while he was still relatively young have continued to be played whilst the Sonatina for flute was even to become his most recorded work. It is highly probable that Dutilleux's maturity as a composer was delayed as a result of the War, since several key 20th century composers were banned at thetime. He also had to find his own voice: I had dto disentangle myself Read more from certain influences. In my earlier works there's also an influence of Faure - his music made a great impression on me when I was young. He'd also been a fellow student at the Ecole Niedermeyer with my grandfather, Julien Koszul. As well as Faure, one observes the influence notably of Ravel, though also of Poulenc, noticeable in th epieces fo rlfute and oboe, an influence Dutilleux had some difficulty breaking away from and that he deplored as being an easy solution, particularly in the finale of the oboe sonata.
