About this Recording

MUSICAL JOURNEY (A) - FRANCE: From Marseille to Cannes (NTSC)



The Places
The places visited are on the coast of Southern France, from Fréjus and Cannes to Marseille. They include the Château d’If, where the fictional Edmond Dantès was held prisoner in The Count of Monte Cristo. There is particular attention given to the flat marshland of the Camargue, with its wild horses and its associated festivities in Arles.

The Music
The music that accompanies the tour is all by French composers, from Saint-Saëns and Offenbach to Debussy and Ravel. Included are Gabriel Fauré’s evocative Berceuse, Siciliene and Pavane, and Ravel’s nostalgic Pavane sur une infant défunte. The tour starts in cheerful mood with Chabrier’s Marche Joyeuse.
