The Paris Connection

Paris: The City of Light--and music

 

It’s been called the City of Light and the City of Love. 

But given the number of composers who found inspiration there, it could just as easily be called the City ofMusic.

In this hour, a celebration of Paris with the help of Jacques Offenbach, Frederick Delius, Jacques Ibert, Franz Lehar, George Gershwin, and more.
