Klee et la musique (CD SEL) swissmusic

Paul Klee shared the position of the Munich, Berlin, Bauhaus and Berne avant-garde in all fields but one: music. This son of musicians , husband of a concert pianist and a violinist himself expressed musical choices that can be considered both expert and conservative.

In his opinion, musical creation reached its peak in the 18th century, in the golden age that started with Bach, ended with Beethoven and had Mozart at its apex.
