Milhaud Chamber Symphony No. 4 for String Dectet

Darius Milhaud, 1892-1974, one of Les Six, was a prolific composer with 443 works to his name. He explored polytonality (playing in more than one key at the same time) and was strongly influenced by jazz, like so many other French composers of the time. 

This concert will be a journey of discovery for most of us!
