Its five brief movements were commissioned by an American publisher as easy pieces for wind ensemble; this was published as Milhaud 's Op. Beginning with the Atlantic coastal regions, "Normandie" is a jaunty march with a hummable melody that ultimately picks up strong accents well off the beat.
A fragment of the tune spins off into a brief counter-subject that provides a moment of polytonality when it's played against the main theme in a different key. Milhaud 's grim, mildly dissonant harmonization of the tune feels desolate and a little threatening. This region was long a source of dispute between France and Germany, changing hands over the years, and Milhaud 's depiction of the region becomes increasingly threatening and dissonant, until the melody finally rings out in a confident, brassy peroration.
