David Tunley: À l'’orient! Early 19th -century French glimpses of the exotic
Against the wider background of East-versus-West from the time of the Crusades this paper focuses upon early 19th-century French interest in eastern music and the attempts to incorporate it into some of the songs (mélodies) of the period. It pre-dates the music of Debussy, Ravel and others whose revolutionary musical techniques were able to absorb elements of the exotic to a far greater extent.
