Maps and Legends: Disc 5 (2010)

<em>Maps and Legends:</em> Disc 5

Disc 5 transports listeners to Paris of the 1920s: “La Ville-Lumière,” a cauldron of modern ideas stirred by the Western world’s visionary artists and thinkers—a time that marked the intersection of Fauré’s nineteenth-century elegance, Ravel’s Impressionist stylings, and the emerging avant-garde, epitomized by Francis Poulenc, Darius Milhaud, and American expatriates Aaron Copland, George Antheil, and George Gershwin. The integration of classical and popular American styles pioneered by Gershwin’s An American in Paris continues today in the music of William Bolcom, whose cabaret songs round out this disc’s eclectic offerings.   |   Liner Notes
