Lili Boulanger: D'un soir triste og D 'un matin de printemps
Lili Boulanger was Nadia's younger sister whom Nadia considered more talented than herself. Lili was recognized as a child prodigy and pursued a life as a gifted composer. Sadly, she was plagued with poor health from a young age that ultimately claimed her life at the tragically young age of 24.
Francis Poulenc’s Sextet for Piano and Winds is a lighthearted and satirical piece by the composer.
The first movement has a mix of playful jazziness and melancholic melody, including a possible reference to “come to me, my melancholy baby,” which also appears in the final movement.
Georges Enescu’s Octet for strings was hailed as an amazing accomplishment for a young man of nineteen, and indeed it is. Enescu wrote that he set out to create a vast work and he admitted it was quite hard for him to achieve what he had set out to do, “No engineer putting his first suspension bridge across a river can have agonized more than I did as I gradually filled my manuscript
paper with notes.” But the final result was truly astounding.
