Mihail Jora (1891 - 1971)

Young Romanian composers studied or specialised abroad, especially in Paris (Mihal Andricu, Theodor Rogalski), Vienna (Paul Constantinescu) or in the German conservatories, absorbing there some of the jazz idioms that were then in vogue in the greater cities. A pupil of Reger in Leipzig, and later of Florent Schmitt in Paris, Mihail Jora seems to combine both teachings in his suite, Joujoux pour ma dameOp. 7, composed in 1924. It is a series of ironic pastiches of the most influential modern composers of the time (Stravinsky, Debussy, Ravel and Bartók).
