Donald Macleod focuses on Koechlin's continuing flirtation with some of the female stars of Hollywood's golden age, including Jean Harlow and Ginger Rogers.
By the 1930s, Koechlin was more famous as an educator than a composer - much to his displeasure. Donald Macleod explores his continuing flirtation with some of the female stars of Hollywood's Golden Age - including Jean Harlow and Ginger Rogers. Plus, as Europe spirals towards war, he looks at Koechlin's radical political and musical beliefs. We end with the composer's last two works based on Kipling's "The Jungle Book".
