Includes bibliographical references (pages 221-234) and index
This book looks at musical life in Paris between 1914 and 1918. It examines how Western art music became a central part of the home-front war effort, employed by both musicians and government as a powerful tool of propaganda. Drawing on a diverse range of archival material, the book explores how various facets of French musical life served, in very different ways, as propaganda. In short, it explores why music mattered during a period of prolonged conflict, whether as emotional catalyst, weapon, or tool.
