About Les Couleurs Fauves, Husa wrote:

I have always been fascinated by colors, not only in music but also in nature and art. The paintings of the Impressionists and Fauvists have been particularly attractive to me, and their French origin accounts for the French title of my piece. The two movements (“Persisting Bells” and “Ritual Dance Masks”) gave me the chance to play with colors—sometimes gentle, sometimes raw—of the wind ensemble, something John (Paynter) also liked to do in his conducting.
