France Musique – a whole week dedicated to Reynaldo Hahn

For all of his life, Reynaldo Hahn was accused of being a lounge musician, light hearted and superficial: his compositions were written for no other reason than to suit the academic needs of the Belle Époque and of the Entre-deux-guerres societies.
