Musical Chairs

Duration:
1 hour
First broadcast:
Thursday 04 July 2013

Donald Macleod considers how contrasting ideologies promoted by the Paris Conservatoire and the Schola Cantorum influenced the composers in the group "Les Apaches".
While Inghelbrecht dabbled in popular song, Ladmirault's fascination with folksong led to several settings of folksongs, recorded specially by the BBC Singers. The group's interests also leant towards the exotic, with Florent Schmitt's treatment of the biblical story of Salome and Maurice Delage's fascination with India. With Jann Pasler from the University of California, San Diego.
