Salamanca Arts Centre presents
Eclectica Salamanca ~ a musical excursion to other times, other places
‘Le Chat Noir Quintette’ will present a variety of Parisian vintage swing and early European jazz from the 1910s to the 1930s in the style of the Hot Club of France, with music by composers such as Henri Crolla, Django Rienhardt, Stephane Grappelli, Romane, Ion Ivanovici, Vincent Rose, Joe Myrow, Irving Berlin, Juan Tizol, Matelo Ferret, Harry Akst, Fats Waller and Toni Murena to name a few. This music has been curated to reflect the street and cafe/bistro sounds of Montmartre (Paris) during the ‘Belle Epoque’ (Beautiful Era). This was a period characterised by optimism, regional peace, economic prosperity and technological, scientific, and cultural innovations. In this era, France’s cultural and artistic climate flourished, with numerous masterpieces of literature, music, theatre, and visual art gaining extensive recognition.
This is the music that Monet, Renoir, Degas, Picasso, and Van Gogh listened to when they were out and about on their evening adventures. One of their favourite venues was the Chat Noir, the bohemian music bar where patrons sat at tables and drank alcoholic beverages while being entertained.
