Pierre Max Dubois (1930-1995) was a teacher of musical analysis at the Paris Conservatory and a prolific composer, mostly of music for wind instruments.  He was trained at the conservatories of Tours and of Paris and won the Prix de Rome in 1953.  During his student years he won prizes in clarinet, harmony, and piano.

As a student of Darius Milhaud, Dubois brought ideas of Les Six, of which Milhaud was a member, into the mid-1900s. Dubois' compositions are characteristically light with interesting and unusual harmonic and melodic textures, as conveyed in this Quartet for Flutes. With all four parts being technically demanding, exploiting extended techniques to the maximum, this piece provides a challenging but enjoyable performance.

Includes score and parts.
