Notes & Reviews:
The Places - The places visited are on the coast of Southern France, from Fréjus and Cannes to Marseille. They include the Château of King René in Tarascon and the famous island Château d'If, where the fictional Edmond Dantès was held prisoner in The Count of Monte Cristo . There is particular attention given to the flat marshland of the Camargue, with its wild horses and its associated festivities in Arles. The Music - The music that accompanies the tour is all by French composers, from Saint-Saëns and Offenbach to Debussy and Ravel. Included are Gabriel Fauré's evocative Berceuse, Sicilienne and Pavane, and Ravel's nostalgic Pavane sur une infante défunte . The tour starts in cheerful mood with Chabrier's Marche Joyeuse.
