- François Le Roux baritone
French Art Song is said to be the perfect marriage between music and French poetry. But how does this work, if an expert such as philosopher Jean- Jacques Rousseau said that French language is non-musical? What kind of French language is it that works for composers?
To try to understand François Le Roux will explore the characteristics of both sung and spoken French to try to understand.
