This course will explore two successive generations of composers in inter-war France, examining their musical styles and innovations within their broader aesthetic, cultural, and political contexts. It will begin with the group "Les Six," which emerged in the early 1920s and included Francis Poulenc, Darius Milhaud, Arthur Honegger, Georges Auric, Germaine Tailleferre, and Louis Durey. The course will then move on to consider the very different political, cultural, and musical context of the 1930s in Europe as the background against which to understand the formation and new spiritual goals of the group "Jeune France," which included most prominently Olivier Messiaen and André Jolivet. There will be weekly lectures, discussions of readings and reports as well as essay and listening tests.
