Sauget's Chateau

Henri Sauget (1901-1989)

I thought there was already a Thread, but it seems not?

I'm listening to Sauget for the very first time right now. The String Quartet No.3 (1979) was a bit too mature, perhaps, for me, with darker emotions than the cheerful No.2 (1949), which I am listening to at this very moment. It certainly has much of the SQs of Debussy/Ravel, with, I'm sure, a healthy dollop of Stravinsky- Neo-Classical it it!

Sauget does not figure very well on Amazon, and has a sketchy YouTube presence. His Guitar Music may be lingering legacy, along with some old LPs I will have to check out, of Symphonies and a Piano Concerto.

Surely someone has the skinny here?

I'm watching this now. Hey, to be compared to Honegger's CC should be all the compliment this cheerfully pastoral work needs.
