Until the horror of World War I stroke in 1914 this time period considered as a “Golden Age” which produced many masterpieces of art and literature. This period called “Belle Époque ” conceived the revolutionary changes in the foundation of classical music as well, which later was land-marked as “New Music.” The concert will present the flourished romanticism during this period and the innovative attempts in music in Paris and around.
