Though little known here, Henri Dutilleux has become one of the most highly regarded of composers--paradoxically on a relatively slender catalogue. At 73 (an age he reaches Sunday) he occupies a position with Olivier Messiaen and Pierre Boulez at the summit of current French music.

You can play some of the repertory all of the time and all of the repertory some of the time, but you can't play all of the repertory all of the time. Or so it was, at least, for pianist Helene Wickett Wednesday night in Bing Theater of the County Museum of Art. In a recital sponsored by Pro Musicis that celebrated the 15th anniverary of her Los Angeles debut, Wickett found herself in touch with her personal keyboard Muse only during the second half of her demanding program. Wickett owns real technical resource and endurance, as demonstrated in works of Beethoven, Brahms, Debussy and Dutilleux.

Henri Dutilleux, the French composer whose modernist music has received international acclaim and is performed regularly by major orchestras, died Thursday in Paris. He was 97. His death was announced by his publisher, Schott Music.  No cause of death has been released. Dutilleux is widely regarded as one of the most important composers of the 20th century. He wasn't a prolific writer, but his style, singular voice and iconoclastic tendencies won him admirers around the world, inviting comparisons to fellow Frenchman Pierre Boulez and Olivier Messiaen - though Dutilleux and the former reportedly did not always get along.

It wasn't exactly a case of Beauty and the Beast on Friday at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. But from the diverse contributions of a 17-year-old Japanese violinist and a 73-year-old French composer came one of the Los Angeles Philharmonic's most exciting concerts of the season thus far.

Soprano Dawn Upshaw, who has been suffering from fall allergies, has been forced to cancel a scheduled appearance with the Berlin Philharmonic at Walt Disney Concert Hall on Nov. 22. Upshaw was to have sung a new work, "Correspondences," written for her by French composer Henri Dutilleux. The work will be sung instead by Canadian soprano Valdine Anderson. Upshaw's allergic symptoms began on a flight to Australia following the world premiere of "Correspondences" in Berlin in late September.

Last week, the Parisii Quartet performed in the area under the auspices of the Music Guild, and appeared as a strong contender in the field of straight repertoire--the stuff of Haydn, Schubert and Beethoven. For the visiting French group's appearance at Monday Evening Concerts this week at the L.A. County Museum of Art, the quartet turned the corner sharply into the 20th century and was an ensemble reborn.

Irony buffs could take pleasure in the extra-musical details of Sunday morning's appearance by members of the Los Angeles Chamber Winds at the John Anson Ford Amphitheater: The wind itself became an unsolicited page-turner. Further trouble arose when a movement of the Poulenc Sextet was halted because of a missing page of music. It was found, and composure quickly regained. The music was French, after all, bolstered by joie de vivre and fatalistic urbanity.

Not for the Arditti String Quartet are the vernacular blandishments of postmodernism, mixed-media spectaculars or attention-getting costumes. Instead, the self-effacing British ensemble concentrates on some of the world's toughest music, usually in premiere performances. Such was the case Sunday afternoon, when the Arditti introduced a dizzyingly diverse group of recent European quartets to a sparse audience at Schoenberg Hall, UCLA.
