Art & Music: Degas - Music of His Time
Igor Stravinsky
Read by Brussels Philharmonic

Edgar Degas (1834-1917) is remembered as the painter of ballet dancers, but the scope of his genius ranged widely. An acute and witty observer, he depicted his native Paris in its many diverse aspects, often hinting at a social isolation and unease hidden beneath the colourful surface. On this CD, the world of Degas is given a musical perspective with a carefully chosen selection of pieces by the finest composers of his time. Inside, Hugh Griffith provides explanatory notes on his life and musical environment.
