Les Six | Le Groupe Des Six: Selected Works 1915-1945

Le Groupe des Six: Selected Works 1919-1945 is the latest release from the LTM label documenting links between avant-garde music and art in the 20th Century.
Mentored by Erik Satie and Jean Cocteau from 1917 to 1923, the celebrated group of young French composers known as Les Six comprised Georges Auric, Louis Durey, Arthur Honegger, Darius Milhaud, Francis Poulenc and Germaine Taillefaire.
This 150 minute remastered double CD set features selected piano and orchestral works by Les Six composed between 1915 and 1945, including collaborations with Jean Cocteau, Guillaume Apollinaire, Max Jacob, Marcelle Meyer and Denise Duval. All selections were recorded between 1928 and 2007, including some personally performed or conducted by the composers themselves. The booklet includes archive images and detailed historical notes by James Hayward.
