Early 20th century French composers

 

France in the early 20th century had such musical giants as Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel. But there were also such fine composers as Paul Dukas, Albert Roussel and Florent Schmitt. Some of these, Roussel and Schmitt, recorded performances of their music. We'll sample recordings of such works as "The Sorcerer's Apprentice," "The Spider's Feast" and "The Tragedy of Salome."
