Bohuslav Martinu (1890-1959) was a prolific Czech composer, writing many large scale works. The composer moved to Paris in 1923 where he began experimenting in composing Ballets. La Revue De Cuisine was composed in 1927 and remains popular to this day.

Incoporating many jazz characteristics, La Revue De Cuisine is composed for Clarinet, Bassoon, Trumpet, Violin, Cello and Piano. Martinu experiments with expressionism and the ballet has been described as ''pantomime-esque'' for its humorous depiction of kitchen utensils. As a varied, substantial work, Martinu''s La Revue De Cuisine is essential to the repertoire of any aspiring and enthusiastic ensemble of advanced musicians.
