  • Biography/Historical Note

    Henri-Pierre Poupard, he adopted his mother's maiden name as his pseudonym (Henri Sauguet). Although he experimented with musique concrète and expanded tonality, he remained opposed to particular systems and his music evolved little: he developed tonal or modal ideas in smooth curves, producing an art of clarity, simplicity and restraint.
