Paris entre-deux-guerres played host to the some of the greatest creative geniuses who ever lived. Throughout the 1920s and 30s, in the salons and concert halls of the French capital, Gershwin and Copland rubbed shoulders with Picasso and Chagall, Gertrude Stein and Ernest Hemingway, Coco Chanel and Nina Ricci. The music of the time was as varied as it was brilliant. In this concert, Stravinsky’s austerely beautiful Symphony of Psalms contrasts with the unabashedly lush sound world of Francis Poulenc.

“My music is my portrait.” Francis Poulenc

“This music is very, very French.” Stravinsky on Poulenc

Cost: £12, £16, £20, £25 (Students and under-18s £10 on the door)
