Quinteto em forma de chôros

Paris, 1928

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.

Le Quintette pour flûte, hautbois, cor anglais, clarinette et basson («em forma de Chôros»), écrit à Paris en 1928, est contemporain de la grande série des Chôros, à laquelle il pourrait facilement s’intégrer. Dotée de multiples sections, tour à tour lyrique et puissante, acerbe, chaotique et entêtée, cette œuvre fut en réalité mieux reçue que nombre des Chôros même, et elle a été fort jouée depuis sa création, le 14 mars 1930, à la Salle Chopin (Paris), lors d’un concert au cours duquel Edgard Varèse dirigea également ses propres œuvres.

Français: Hypérion

Das Quintett für Flöte, Oboe, Englischhorn, Klarinette und Fagott („em forma de Chôros“) entstand 1928 in Paris, zeitgleich mit der Hauptserie der Chôros, in die es ohne weiteres hätte aufgenommen werden können. Das mehrfach untergliederte Werk, abwechselnd lyrisch und energisch, widerborstig, chaotisch und mutwillig, wurde positiver aufgenommen als viele der Chôros selbst und ist seit seiner Uraufführung bei einem Konzert am 14. März 1930 im Pariser Salle Chopin, bei dem auch Edgard Varèse eigene Werke dirigierte, viele Male gespielt worden.
