Harlequin Years: Music in Paris 1917-1929
Roger Nichols (au)
Few decades in the life of any European city have been as rich in musical personalities & achievements as the 1920s in Paris. This book charts a nimble course through this remarkable era, noting currents as well as personalities, telling stories as well as pondering the occasional philosophical problem. Through the whole book runs the double thread spun by Jean Cocteau in his little volume “Le coq et l’harlequin”: the warp of the traditional French cock being pulled by the weft of the foreign, multicolored harlequinade. The spirited narrative shows that this was also an uncertain time, as the war had cast doubt on old assumptions. Some composers continued with traditional forms, though each brought to them his own highly personal language & syntax. Illus.
