Sauget's Chateau
« on: October 24, 2017, 05:33:52 PM »
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?

Cello Concerto

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

"Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm" (Churchill).

'The test of a work of art is, in the end, our affection for it, not our ability to explain why it is good' (Stanley Kubrick).
