Description: Collectors of 20th century Dutch music will want Smit's bright, Gallic piece from 1932, coming from the Parisian milieu of Poulenc, Milhaud and Françaix while Pijper's 1923 sextet is a good example of his germ-cell technique in which the four notes which open the work form the seed from which everything else in the piece happens. Hexagon Ensemble.
