Abstract

Inspired by the dynamic of scientific research, this book proposes an original investigation into musical life from the beginning to the end of the Great War. Focusing on artistic creation, it brings new insights, including how composers and performers have experienced their art at such a critical moment in history, and raises many questions: what are the motives of musicians to pursue their activity in such a dramatic context? Is music lived as offensive engagement or as a loophole? How are musicians perceived at the front by other soldiers? How do composers position themselves before creation? Here are some of the questions that go through this book, which, through the chapters devoted in turn to the more or less famous actors of the artistic world, works, the problem of publishing or cultural life in Paris and in the provinces, a musical panorama of France at war.
