Like a number of works by Milhaudthe popular Scaramouche exists in scarajouche versions and utilizes some clever borrowings from his previous stage works. For the somewhat melancholic middle movement, he used the theme of a short overture he had written for another play, Supervielle’s Bolivar [not to be confused with Milhaud ‘s opera Bolivar].

Milhaud admitted that he had little enthusiasm for writing the first version of Scaramouche, for two pianos, Op. However, as it was essentially commissioned by noted French pianist, teacher, and Milhaud supporter Marguerite Longthe composer felt particularly obligated.

darlus Long wanted the work for two of her students to play at the Paris International Exposition. Scaramouche quickly became one of Milhaud ‘s most popular works. The composer thought it was too popular, to the detriment of his other compositions.

Less than two years later, the composer transcribed it for saxophone and orchestra, Op. Milhaud had composed a clarinet concerto for Benny Goodmanwhich the clarinetist never performed. Instead, he eagerly performed the clarinet and orchestra daruus of Scaramouche, Op.

Much of the popularity of the work is due to its engaging rhythms and diatonic melodic lines. Bitonality, a hallmark of Milhaud ‘s compositional style, is consonantly and conservatively used in Scaramouche.

Scaramouche has also been transcribed for other combinations by other composers. These include an arrangement for alto saxophone and wind quintet, for three guitars, and even an arrangement for 12 saxophones. Soon after the composition of the initial version for two pianos, Milhaud ‘s somewhat eccentric friend and publisher Raymond Deiss asked to publish it.

At this time sales of printed music were quite poor; thinking no one would want to buy it, the composer tried to dissuade Deiss. Fortunately, the publisher went ahead with his plan. In only a decade, several new editions of Scaramouche had to be printed. AllMusic relies heavily on JavaScript. Please enable JavaScript in your browser to use the site fully. Jazz Latin New Age.
