During Stravinsky’s time in French-speaking Switzerland and France he encountered ragtime and jazz, and developed his ‘neo-classical’ approach, while retaining musical affinities with his native Russia.

This series juxtaposes music from his French period with music by a variety of composers from the French tradition – including Saint-Saëns and Fauré, the great Impressionists Debussy and Ravel, and the ‘bright young things’ of the generation that emerged after the First World War.
