Airs populaires harmonisés, de Chopin à Canteloube
The composers of the 19th and 20th centuries were often passionate about popular musical traditions. Joseph Canteloube (1879-1957), Maurice Emmanuel (1862-1938), or Emmanuel Chabrier (1841-1894) who said from himself: « I rhythm my music with my ‘Auvergnat’s clogs » gave tribute to those popular melodies, by harmonising them with creativity, taste and respect.
