The Brazilian tunes and rhythms which captivated Milhaud during his First World War Service in that country emerged twenty years later in his incidental music for a 1937 production of Molière's play "Le Médecin Volant". At the same time, he was asked for a piece for two pianos to be performed at the 1937 International Exhibition and, rather against his will, Milhaud reworked elements from "Le Médecin..." into what he called an 'amalgam' - "Scaramouche". It has three colourful Brazilian-style movements which have been likened to musical fireworks and, despite Milhaud's opposition, was published by his editor Deiss in 1939. The success of the piece led to several transcriptions including the composer's for alto saxophone and piano but "This success often peeved the composer, who sometimes considered that this ragamuffin of a piece unfairly diverted attention from the rest of his output..."
