Exoticism in France

»In the age of Louis XIV one was a Hellenist, now one is an Orientalist«, wrote Victor Hugo in 1829. The Near and Far East fascinated Europe, and France in particular, in the 19th century and beyond. Camille Saint-Saëns traveled around for years, from Vietman to Uruguay, but stayed mostly in Algeria and Egypt, where he composed his 5th piano concerto, »the Egyptian«. In addition to his better-known song cycle, Maurice Ravel also devoted an early overture to an opera that was never completed to the literary figure of Scheherazade, paying homage at the same time to Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov and his composition of the same name. Igor Stravinsky also referred to this Russian composer, his teacher, with his ballet »L'oiseau de feu«, »The Firebird«, which was created for the Ballets russes in Paris and made him famous all of a sudden.
