Albert Roussel Trio for flute, Viola and violoncello, op. 40
Claude Debussy Petite Suite for woodwind quintet
Bohuslav Martinů La Revue de Cuisine

Bohuslav Martinů describes a humorous love story between a pot and a lid in his ballet La Revue de Cuisine. The work was created in Paris, where he completed his studies with Albert Roussel. Roussel was considered one of the most important composers in France in the 1920s. His neo-classical Trio of 1929 is a late work, whereas the Divertissement was written during his beginnings as a composer, which were influenced by late Romanticism. Between the pieces by Roussel is the elegant piano trio by Ernest Chausson, whose works form a bridge between the late Romantic tradition and the modern Impressionism of Claude Debussy. Chausson was friends with the latter for several years. At the beginning of his dance-like Petite Suite, originally written for piano for four hands, Debussy captures the image of a boat trip over gently rocking waves. The work, which is also popular in its orchestral version, is heard in this concert with a wind quintet.
