Fanely Revoil (b1910)


Swiss and of remoter French ancestry, Frank Martin later settled in Holland, while teaching composition in Cologne. He had earlier been associated with the Dalcroze Institute, while enjoying a career also as a keyboard-player and teacher. His music combines a German element with French in a musical idiom that is his own, tonal, once the principles of Schoenberg's serialism had been absorbed and adapted to his own particular use.

Stage Music

Martin wrote two operas, a version of Shakespeare's The Tempest (Der Sturm) and of Molière's Monsieur de Pourceaugnac. Ballets include Das Märchen vom Aschenbrödel (The Story of Cinderella) and there is what is described as an oratorio/spectacle in Le mystère de la Nativité (The Mystery of the Nativity). He provided incidental music for plays from the Oedipus trilogy of Sophocles, to Racine's Athalie and Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.

Orchestral Music

Frank Martin's Petite symphonie concertante, for harpsichord, harp, piano and two string orchestras is probably the best known of his compositions. His concertos include a somewhat astringent First Piano Concerto, a Concerto for wind instruments, percussion and strings, a Violin Concerto, a Harpsichord Concerto, a Second Piano Concerto and a Cello Concerto. His five Ballades are also scored for solo instruments, with a small orchestra, featuring respectively, saxophone, flute, trombone or tenor saxophone and cello, with a final Ballade for viola, wind, harpsichord and harp.
