Product Description

The French composer, Georges Auric lived from 1899 – 1983. A child prodigy, he began writing songs and piano pieces as early as twelve years of age and by the age of fifteen had composed over 200 works. His family moved to Paris when he was fourteen, at which time he began studying with Georges Caussade at the Paris Conservatory. Georges later studied under the composers Vincent d'Indy and Albert Roussel at the Schola Cantorum. Before he turned 20, he had orchestrated and written incidental music for several ballets and stage productions.

As a young musician, Auric was influenced by Erik Satie and he joined a group of French composers known as Les Six, who wrote music with a popular appeal. In Auric’s words, it was music that produced “auditory pleasure without demanding a disproportionate effort from the listener.” Other composers in the group included Poulenc, Milhaud, Honegger, Tailleferre and Durey.

Auric began writing film scores at the beginning of the 1930s, when Jean Cocteau started making motion pictures. His most notable film score was Moulin Rouge (1952). From 1954 to 1978, Auric was chairman of SACEM, the French Performing Rights Society, and from 1962 to 1968, he was also director of the Opéra National de Paris. Auric continued to write classical chamber music, especially for winds, up to his death.

The Trio for Oboe, Clarinet and Bassoon was written in 1938. The current edition is based on the first published parts from Editions De L’Oiseau Lyre. Obvious errors in notation have been corrected and missing slurs, articulation markings and dynamics have been added for consistency between the parts. Score and parts are included in the set.
