Jacques Offenbach (1819 – 1880) was a German-born French composer, cellist and impresario of the romantic period. He is remembered for his nearly 100 operettas of the 1850s–1870s and his uncompleted opera The Tales of Hoffmann. He was a powerful influence on later composers of the operetta genre, particularly Johann Strauss, Jr. and Arthur Sullivan. His best-known works were continually revived during the 20th century, and many of his operettas continue to be staged in the 21st.
Mais de qui est ce concerto ? Mais de vous Monsieur Ravel ! du 20 novembre 2013
Maurice Ravel (1875-1937) was a French composer known especially for his melodies, orchestral and instrumental textures and effects. Much of his piano music, chamber music, vocal music and orchestral music has entered the standard concert repertoire. Ravel is perhaps known best for his orchestral work 'Boléro' (1928), which he considered trivial and once described as "a piece for orchestra without music".
