3 moderns of French music

Simon Basinger, Delphine Bertozzi, Pétronille Danchin, Anastassia Elias, Françoise Lepaulmier, Marcelino Truong
Erik Satie, Claude Debussy, Francis Poulenc. At the turn of the 20th century, these three French composers blew a wind of freedom through music that became synonymous with modernity. A set for a gentle approach to discover them.
  • Simon Basinger Publishing director of Cahiers Francis Poulenc, Simon Basinger created Poulenc International Week in 2011. He produces original events on and around the composer. For Poulenc year in 2013, he wished to offer to the young public a portrait of the composer that he so admires.

  • Delphine Bertozzi delights in children's company. She has written Little Poetic Fantasies and Of Knights and Dragons, published by Bodoni Ed. She likes the cinema, literature, art history, and Italy, the country of her grandfather.

  • Pétronille Danchin writes and puts on short plays for children. In the “Seeds and Guides” collection, she has written the title on Lewis Carroll and that on George Gershwin.

  • Anastassia Elias published her first title with the publisher Motus and the second with the publisher du Rocher. Her work has revealed her to be talented illustrator.

  • Françoise Lepaulmier is a painter. She teaches plastic arts in elementary schools.

  • Marcelino Truong is an illustrator and author. He tells the story of his childhood in Vietnam, in an illustrated novel entitled Such a Lovely Little War – Saigon 1961-63 (Denoël Graphique, 2012).
