“Les Six” is a name given in 1923 by critic Henri Collet to a group of six composers (Georges Auric, Louis Durey, Arthur Honegger, Darius Milhaud, Francis Poulenc and Germaine Tailleferre) working in Montparnasse, Paris, whose music is often seen as a reaction against the musical style of Richard Wagner and impressionist music.
Neil Butterworth is a musicologist.
