Six, Les (Fr.). The Six. Name applied by Fr. mus. critic Henri Collet in 1920 to group of young Fr. composers who, under influence of Satie and Cocteau, had achieved notoriety for their advanced ideas. They were Auric, Durey, Honegger, Milhaud, Poulenc, and Tailleferre. However, they soon went their separate ways and did not long operate as a group.
