“Paris, almost exactly at the beginning of the 20th Century, had become the exciting place where new things were happening in music, where you found fresh air, and great new names, and a fever of creative energy.” Bernstein gives us a look at the journeys some composers took to Paris and how Parisian culture guided their development. Our perfect example is George Enescu, whose epic piano quartet is a colorful synthesis of lush French harmonies and the spirit of his native Romania.
