Summary
"Matisse, Dufy, Cocteau, Eluard, Koechlin and Britten. These are just a few of the many artists, writers and musicians whose work touched and deeply influenced the music of French composer Francis Poulenc (1899-1963). In this volume, many leading scholars of twentieth-century French music, from France, Britain and America, provide vivid new insights into the creative relationships that are evident in Poulenc's songs, operas, choral and orchestral music." "The variety of contributions that Sidney Buckland and Myriam Chimenes have brought together here results in a rare opportunity to discover in depth Poulenc's multi-faceted life and work, as a composer, librettist, broadcaster, performer and friend. Moreover, the wide network of relationships that the essays explore gives a new perspective on French cultural life in the first half of the century." "Illustrated with many previously unpublished photographs, the book also features some of Poulenc's own writings, including an intriguing list of books that would form his 'ideal library'."--Jacket
