Art & Music: Picasso - Music of His Time
Francis Poulenc
Read by Christine Lajarigge

The genius of Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) was truly astounding. No other painter of the twentieth century approaches him in reputation and influence, and none did more to create the revolution in art which we still call modernism. Each new generation continues to find the power of his vision compelling. On this CD, the world of Picasso is given a musical perspective with a carefully chosen selection of pieces by the finest composers of his time. Picasso designed sets for Stravinsky's Pulcinella and Satie's Parade - two very different composers with whom he shared common ground. This exciting and varied selection of pieces forms a descriptive musical backdrop for Picasso's dazzling originality. As always, Hugh Griffith provides clear and absorbing notes.
