    An example of his use of polytonality is Saudades do Brasila set of dance suites. I always suspected that it was one of those "masterpieces" like the Beethoven Horn Sonata; this is a really quite weak work, which we revere because it is almost the only classical sonata for the instrument and because it is by Beethoven. The phrasing in the original folk-tune is again in five, and I ask the players to accent the first crotchet, lighten the top D on the second beat, emphasise the accent on the last beat, but lighten the first beat of bar 4, repeating this phrasing from the second beat of bar 4. The music is lost, but it is reputed to have matched the film's abrupt, expressionist rhythm, climaxing—for a scene where the hero resurrects his dead love in a futuristic laboratory—in a bravura cadenza scored solely for percussion instruments. What seems to me to set his individual pattern apart from that of other composers is the fact that his music so often takes its raison d'etre from his family, social or religious life. Phrase up to and away from second beat of third bar, while the quavers in low wind and horns take over for two beats in bar 4.

    In an extraordinary concert there inthe Budapest Quartet performed the composer's 14th String Quartet, followed by the Paganini Quartet 's performance of his 15th; and then both ensembles played the two pieces together as an octet. Again from bar 20, balance the canon very carefully so that we hear the bitonality clearly, A major and D major. Milhaud has now completed his sixtieth year. Ideally, phrasing and balance should be a natural part of the conductor's technique; if s he has a group which rehearses regularly and is sensitive to the requirements of playing solo, blending, accompanying, and if the players are expert enough to have sorted out the intonation problems, and the relative strengths of their instruments depending on the tessitura, then the conductor can develop a language of gesture which can tell the orchestra or band a lot of the information which is not on the page and which s he has acquired through experience of the composer's other works, from other composers, from the art, architecture and literature of the period.

    He was at his best with straightforward, light-hearted subjects such as Raymond Bernard's Cavalcade d'amoura look at love during three periods of history. He was the first to analyze though not the first to use polytonality and to develop that technique consistently. The most frequently discussed feature of his musical language is polytonality the simultaneous use of multiple tonal centersthough Milhaud was familiar with and fluent in any number of twentieth century "techniques. In he became professor at Mills CollegeOaklandCalif.
