The French Connection to perform in Southport

1st June 2016

The French Connection at the Atkinson Monday 6 June 2016

The French Connection makes us think of Les Six, the name given to a group of six composers living in the area around Montparnasse. Their work was thought to be a reaction against the musical style of Richard Wagner and the impressionist music of Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel. The most famous one of the six is perhaps Francois Poulenc and today you can hear his Sextet for piano and winds. Also in the programme, some Eric Satie for piano and the Trois Pièces Brèves written for wind quintet by Jacques Ibert.
