The Places

In addition to characteristic scenes from Paris, its buildings and its people, there is a glimpse of the Château at Chantilly, the magnificent palace of Versailles, and the Cathedral at Chartres.

The Music

The music included here is largely associated with Paris, although not all by French composers. It includes a movement from a symphony that Mozart wrote in Paris in 1778 and excerpts from Verdi's opera La Traviata, set principally in the city. Other music ranges from that of the seventeenth-century French viol player Marais to works by Debussy and the eccentric Erik Satie.
