Between 1919 and 1939, Paris experienced a cultural and intellectual boom. This blog will feature artists, writers, composers, musicians, and designers. Paris was at its cultural peak.
Jacques Ibert (1890-1962) was a French composer. He wrote (sometimes in collaboration with other composers) seven operas, five ballets, incidental music for plays and films, choral work, and chamber music. In addition to composing, Ibert was active as a conductor and in musical administration.
During World War II, he spent some time in exile in Switzerland while the Nazis occupied France.
