Title: Jean Huré
Post by: greek on June 14, 2022, 11:39:07 am
Jean Huré was born in Gien in 1877.

He gave us three grand symphonies and two string quartets.

The First String Quartet is cyclic; the outer movements share homophonic textures and ostinato patterns. By contrast, the middle movement is chromatic and contrapuntal. The Second String Quartet is overtly modal and folk-like in character. The rhythmic incisiveness, repetition, narrow range and ubiquitous perfect fourths are reminiscent of early Stravinsky.
