“LES SIX – FRENCH REBELLIONS” 
 
For flute, oboe, English horn, and piano 
“Les Six” (French for ‘the six’) was a group of young French composer-friends, involved together in various musical and artistic endeavors around 1920. 
 
They were quite varied in their individual musical pursuits and styles, but are connected in the overall French art culture of their time and place. Their music is generally regarded as a rebellious reaction to the imposing style of Richard Wagner, and the impressionism of Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel.
