The places visited are on the coast of Southern France, from Fréjus and Cannes to Marseille. They include the 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 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, Siciliene and Pavane, and Ravel’s nostalgic Pavane sur une infant défunte. The tour starts in cheerful mood with Chabrier’sRead more Marche Joyeuse.

Cannot save a copy on my laptopAugust 6, 2013By Rose G M. (Betheda, MD)See All My Reviews"I had seen a short segment of this on the Arts Channel and wanted to see the entire video and learn where the places shown are located. The entire video and accompanying music is lovely. However, I was unable to save a copy on my laptop to take with me on travels (my MacBook AIr has no built in CD reader so it means carrying an external accessory). I would think saving a copy to media other than using off the disc should be an option."Report Abuse
