Dutilleux Henri

Henri Dutilleux (1916-2013) was a French composer who followed tradition of M. Ravel, C. Debussy and O. Messiaen. Dutilleux was notoriously critical about his works, and Sonatine was not an exception. He even stated that "...it doesn't yet sound really like my music".  
Nevertheless he had received various major prizes throughout his career: the Grand Prix de Rome (1938), International Music Council's International Rostrum of Composers (1955), the Grand-Croix de la Légion d'honneur (2004) to name a few.
Born in Angers, he initially studied harmony and counterpoint at the Douai Conservatory. Later he moved to Paris where he studied with Henri Büsser. From 1945 till 1963 he led Music Production for Radio France and taught composition at École Normale de Musique de Paris until 1970 when he joined the faculty of Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique. For three years he was a composer-in-residence at Tanglewood.
His music was greatly influenced by art (Vincent van Gogh) and literature (Charles Baudelaire, Marcel Proust). Many artists had commissioned works from him: Charles Munch, George Szell, Mstislav Rostropovich, Isaac Stern, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Simon Rattle, Renée Fleming, and Seiji Ozawa.
