This unique performance will feature the last works by both Saint Saens and Poulenc, including the rare chance to hear work of the only female composer of Les Six: an intriguing 1917 Trio by Poulenc’s friend and colleague Germaine Tailleferre … ending with Poulenc’s effervescent 1926 Trio, always among his own favourite pieces, dedicated to Manuel de Falla.
“…the French have a keener sense of proportion. We realize that sombreness and good humour are not mutually exclusive. Our composers … write profound music, but when they do, it is leavened with that lightness of spirit without which life would be unendurable." - Francis Poulenc
Presented by Artaria in association with The National Trust of South Australia.

“…At the moment I am concentrating my last reserves on giving rarely considered instruments the chance to be heard…” - Camille Saint Saens
“…The essential thing is that it be music. I don’t see any reason why I shouldn’t write what I feel. If it gives the impression of being feminine, that’s fine. … I tried to do the best I could, but I never asked myself if it was feminine or not. If it is music, it is music.” - Germaine Tailleferre
