MUSIQUE(S) - IMAGE(S) - Alexandre Tansman

Alexandre Tansman in Hollywood

The power of music set to images has never been more obvious than at the peak of Hollywood, from the 1930s to the 1960s, when the whole art world literally fertilised the big studio productions. The compositions “made in France” rarely come to mind when considering these years: if music history often cites the exiles, fertile and undoubtedly important, of Schoenberg, Korngold, and Weill (alongside Ernst Lubitsch and Fritz Lang) to the United States, it often ignores the presence of "Parisian" composers. However, the tradition of French composers emigrating to the United States, started by Edgard Varèse (or Marcel Duchamp and Raymond Loewy in the visual arts), certainly continued during the context of the Second World War, as shown by Alexandre Tansman, born in Poland and a naturalised French citizen in 1938.
