Ibert

Unread post by boblipton » Mon Jan 23, 2012 6:06 am

A good friend of mine who's a professor of History asks me:

here's a silly piece of music I like a great deal: Jacques Ibert's _Divertissement_. I use the last movement of it and a photo of the Gare Montparnasse train accident as by intro to the French Third republic. Notionally, the _Divertissement_ started out as the music for a silent French film. I don't suppose you happen to know which?


Does anyone know?

The original music was written for "The Italian Straw Hat"- but for a production of the stage farce, not for Clair's film.
