Description: Casterede’s musical roots are in the early twentieth-century traditions of neo-Classicism and Les Six- the wide variety of scope and intent in his work was never meant to compete with the radical avant-garde. The balletic Flûtes en vacances has become one of his most popular pieces, while Ciels was a competition piece for the Conservatoire. The colors in the moments musicaux depict paintings in sound while the Sonatine is more neo-Classical in mood. Cobus di Toit (flute) and other performers.
