Ainsi la nuit

Guildhall musicians present some of Dutilleux’s intricate chamber music, including the wonderfully fluent string quartet Ainsi la nuit, considered by many to be one of the finest quartets of the post-war period. The Sonatine for flute and piano takes a very French tradition into enigmatic new realms while the darker Les citations pays homage to a composer who died fighting in the Second World War.
