Notes and Editorial Reviews

As the 19th century faded and the 20th century began, something special was in the air: the scent of decadence mingled with the thrill of the new. Moving from Romanticism to Modernism, creative spirits welcomed diverse influences – some of them exotic – and introduced new textures and colours to their work. Whether first heard in Paris, Vienna or London, the music of the Belle Époque was typically sensuous, elegant and perfumed – and full of subtle delights.
