These six arrangements come from a set of descriptive piano miniatures, L’almanach aux images – scenes from an almanac – which Grovlez wrote in 1911 after poems by Tristan Klingsor. He was a fine and respected pianist, but better known as a conductor. For 20 years he was director of the Paris Opera and conducted a season with Diaghilev’s Ballet Russe, as well as conducting the first performance of Ravel’s ballet, Mother Goose. His compositions include a ballet, stage works, chamber music, songs and several small-scale works for piano.
