Quinteto em forma de chôros
composer
Paris, 1928

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Quintet for flute, oboe, cor anglais, clarinet and bassoon (‘em forma de Chôros’) was written in Paris in 1928. It is thus contemporary with the main Chôros series and could easily have been included in it. Multi-sectional, alternately lyrical and forceful, spiky, chaotic, and wilful, the work was indeed better received than many of the Chôros themselves, and has been much performed since its first hearing on 14 March 1930 at the Salle Chopin, Paris, a concert at which Edgard Varèse also directed performances of his own works.
