REMEMBERING A MUSICAL ERA: HENRI DUTILLEUX IN CONVERSATION

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  02 July 2015

Extract

Henri Dutilleux was a unique musical figure of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. His music is defined by his great sense of lyricism and meticulous control, which, over his life as a composer, had undergone much thought and a gradual sense of change. He inevitably acquired a wide mix of contemporary influences, which added to his poetic vision. Dutilleux's music appears to be a sophisticated understatement, yet at the same time there is an expressive depth and mystery that sets his music apart from any one musical movement or group of his time.
