André Jolivet

Rhapsodie à sept (1957) Duration : 19’

Instruments : Clarinet, Basson, Cornet, Trombone, Percussion, Violon, Double Bass,

Effectively combining spasmodic gesture with insistent pulse, the Rhapsodie, composed in 1957, is scored for the same combination of instruments as Stravinsky had used four decades and a half earlier in L’Histoire du soldat.
