Hop-off to Paris

One of a group of artists commonly known as Les Apaches (the hooligans), Ravel took on
the 18-year-old Poulenc as a student. Perhaps rather surprisingly, instead of encouraging
Poulenc to study his own works, Ravel recommended that he study the works of a real
genius: Saint-Saëns.

Camille Saint-Saëns (1835—1921):

Sonata in G, Op. 168 for bassoon and piano (1921)

Maurice Ravel (1875—1937):

String Quartet in F (1902–03)

Francis Poulenc (1899—1963):

Trio for oboe, bassoon and piano (1924–26)
