At sea with Jean Cras – part 3

tue 4 nov 2014

Part 3 of our series about the remarkable double career of Jean Cras (1879-1932) is broadcast on Tuesday 4th November from 19:00 to 20:00 CET.

Jean Cras was a naval officer who somehow also found the time to compose light and visual music, in a style somewhat similar to Duparc, Ravel, Debussy and Chausson. This episode looks at the period following his promotion as a young officer to the command of a destroyer, the Amiral Sénès. A period in which he roamed the world's oceans.
