Opening of the exhibition "Art déco in París (1910-1935)” URL:

The diversity of trends that characterised the art déco period, its pragmatism and commitment to fusing fine and applied arts are reflected in some of the music composed between 1910 and 1935. The works of this period –in particular French mélodies– were able to break down the boundaries between popular and classical music in settings like cabarets. Music, which often served a practical function, lends itself to experimentation to generate exquisite works that include exotic touches, sometimes borrowed from jazz, that seek to seduce the listener by appealing to sensuality, celebrating novelty and providing an optimistic look at modern life.
