EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Begun in 1932, the Sextet for piano and wind instruments was not completed until 1939. Its basic form is that of the Trio. A motto theme, first heard for wind alone, recurs in all three movements. In the central Divertissement, a lyrical slow movement and its modified repetition enclose a rather perky middle section. The finale roams chromatically in many and distant keys, but ends in ten bars of an adulterated C major.
