Divertimento is an arrangement by Viatka Nushev of Sextuor. Strangely enough, I had original/y considered calling my sextet 'Divertimento': commissioned by Éric Le Sage and Paul Meyer, and composed for a 1998 New Year 's Concert at the Théâtre du Chatelet in Paris, it is a happy, cheerful piece, notwithstanding a suspended melancholy moment in the slow movement. The first movement, Dynamique, is a set of variations packed with rhythmic processes inherited from American repetitive music. Nocturne, the middle movement, is a soft, painful confidence entrusted ta the clarinet over delicate harmonies provided by the strings and piano in the background. Brimming with feverish Jay, the third and last movement - Festif - unfolds various motifs (with a little wink ta Schubert 's 'Trout Quintet '). The piece ends on a cadential Jake.
