Henri Sauguet (1901-1989) was a favourite pupil of Erik Satie and Charles Koechlin. Later he became closely related to the famous Groupe des Six, the composers around Poulenc, Auric and Milhaud. His fame spread, and he was commissioned to write ballets for Diaghilev’s Les Ballets Russes and Ida Rubinstein.
Sauguet’s style is a reflection of the pluriform development of 20-th century music: impressionism, expressionism, Darmstadt School, all had their influence on him. His “native’ language however is one of expressive lyricism, and that warmth of feeling shines through all his works.
This new recording presents Sauguet’s complete output for guitar: small scale works written in cycles, miniatures of great beauty, originality and strong contrasting feelings.
A first recording with excellent performances by guitarist Alfonso Baschiera, who is joined by flutist Federica Lotti in the Six Pièces Faciles.
Recorded in Italy in October 2013 and May 2014.
