About

Young love. Ennui. Irony. Tragedy. Hope. These are just some of the topics touched upon by the Les Six composers in their versatile output. From songs lamenting the Great War to folk-inspired peasant music and everything in between, the second installment of CSI's Survey of Les Six will provide a glimpse into everyday twentieth-century French life.
