Jacques Casterede’s distinguished career was centered in Paris, but with musical roots in the early twentieth-century traditions of neo-Classicism and Les Six- the wide variety of scope and intent in his work was never meant to compete with the radical avant-garde. The balletic Flutes en vacances has become one of his most popular pieces, while Ciels (‘Skies’) was a competition piece for the Conservatoire. The colors in Trois moments musicaux d’apres Corot depict paintings in sound while the Sonatine de Mai is more neo-Classical in mood.
