HENRI DUTILLEUX  

(1916 - 2013)

The French composer Henri Dutilleux, although individual in his approach, nevertheless followed the traditions of Ravel and Debussy, seeking clarity and economy in his musical language and an enjoyment of varied timbres.

Orchestral Music

In his two symphonies Dutilleux explored novel combinations of sound, in the first contrasting groups and single instruments and in the second dividing the orchestra into a smaller chamber group, separate from the larger body. His Métaboles of 1964 allows a gradual emergence of thematic material, as, in a measure, does Tout un monde lointain…, a work for cello and orchestra written between 1968 and 1970.

Chamber Music

Similar qualities are to be heard in the chamber music of Dutilleux, with its idiomatic use of wind instruments, and in the string quartet of 1976, Thus the Night.
