Music in 19th Century Paris
Music in 19th Century Paris: from Waterloo to Bismarck Music in Paris during the middle of the 19th century was dominated by one supreme composer and a stellar supporting cast whose works remain in heavy rotation to this day. Join us to explore the Parisian scene from roughly 1813 to 1870, the period between the fall of Napoleon I and the start of the Franco Prussian War. We'll look at Hector Belioz, and also at Bizet, Cherubini, Faure, Gounod, Meyerbeer, Offenbach, and St-Saens. And we'll visit with some of the foreigners who flocked to Paris to make their own contributions: Bellini, Chopin, Donizetti, Liszt, Paganini, Rossini, Sarasate, Wagner, and more. It's an era of great artistic change which brought Realism and Naturalism to the novels of Hugo and Flaubert, and led to impressionism in painting. And it's where we go this week on Exploring Music.
