- Roy Stratford
‘Pleasure in sound’ could perhaps be the motto of French musicians; the extraordinary cuisine, viniculture and romantic inclinations of that extraordinary country would lead to no other approach.
Join Roy Stratford to explore the distinctive nature of French music, from the Baroque with its emphasis on dance, through to Berlioz and his incredibly forward-looking orchestral writing, on to Debussy, the ultimate musical colourist, and on to Boulez, the master of the avant-garde.
