Dutilleux Symposium
Cambridge, May 2005

Sunday 1 May 
Henri Dutilleux ­ a day of celebration

Highly regarded contemporary French composer Henri Dutilleux was born in
1916. Following the Second World War he broke with his previous
compositional approach and began to create works with a distinct and
personal view, particularly adopting informal construction. The later part
of his creative life has been heavily influenced by the works of Marcel
Proust and he also acknowledges the fine arts. This day celebrates his
life, work and his influence on younger composers.
