Darius Milhaud’s Scaramouche is one of the most popular 20th century works for 2 pianos. I have heard it performed in many Dranoff concerts, and never tire of it.
Milhaud’s music was much influenced by Brazil. Of the three movements, he first and last ones are driving and upbeat dances. In the second movement, the composer creates a dreamy respite that reminds me of those restful meanderings when time disappears and we are carried forward by gentle breezes. - Rise Kern
