Les Musiciens de Saint-Julien, François Lazarevitch

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.
During this onirical evocation of the atmosphere of an evening with Georges Sand in Nohant, or of any evening in the country with firewood in the chimney, the traditional universe and the classical world confront, complete or meet each other in a thorough musical communion.
