 Update me on new releases by Durey

Louis Durey (5/27/1888 - 7/03/1979)

Strongly influenced by Debussy’s opera Pelléas et Mélisande, Louis Durey joined the informal Groupe des Six, the six young French composers under the influence of Satie and Cocteau, but soon took a divergent course that allowed increasing scope for his political affiliations. He was secretary general of the Fédération Musicale Populaire and later of the Association Française des Musiciens Progressistes.

Stage Works

Durey’s music for the theatre includes the incidental music Chant des partisans coréens (‘Song of the Korean Partisans’), among other works.

Orchestral Music

Durey wrote a Concertino for piano, wind instruments, double bass and timpani, a Mouvement symphonique for piano and strings, and a string Sinfonietta, as well as a Fantaisie concertante for cello, among other relatively large-scale compositions.

Chamber Music

Chamber music by Durey includes a Flute Sonatina, a String Trio and Les Soirées de Vallère for wind quintet, in addition to his three string quartets.
