"That Milhaud’s inspiration was not failing him is clear also from Les momies d’Egypte, a lively romp for vocal quartet and mime or dance with a Commedia dell’arte text by Regnard in an amusing mix of French and Italian..."
"[Milhaud] was associated with the avant garde of the 1920s, whose abundant production reflects all musical genres. A pioneer in the use of percussion, polytonality, jazz and aleatory techniques, his music allies lyricism with often complex harmonies. Though his sources of inspiration were many and varied, his music has compelling stylistic unity... The opera Médée is perhaps his finest work of [the 1930s]: a fascinating study of a woman scorned, graphically portrayed in some of the composer’s most angular, expressionist music." Jeremy Drake in Grove Music Online.
