Du jazz dans le « classique »

Finding jazz in classical music

The music we call 'classical' (or 'serious,' by virtue of it being written down) has historically been cognizant of, if not directly inspired by, traditional music in all its forms—mainly rooted in oral transmission. If the 20th century has seen one musical style in particular being built on the basis of another (the music of African Americans) and able to dazzle and develop in multiple directions—including complex forms of improvisation and harmonic experiments, for example—, it is jazz. The meeting of classical music and jazz was inevitable and has borne—and today continues to bear—plenty of fruit we can all savour.
