About

Pianist, conductor, teacher and composer, Ernst von Dohnányi was a giant in the world of Hungarian music, and his Sextet is a sublime example of his cosmopolitan musical style; sensuous, sophisticated and brimming with beautiful ideas. Germaine Tailleferre, the only female member of the influential band of composers known as Les Six, composed her delicate, impressionistic quartet just one year after Stravinsky created his concert drama The Soldier’s Tale. The suite Stravinsky drew from this modern version of the Faust story is one of his most compelling chamber works.
