4. Milhaud, La Création du monde
Not an American in Paris, but a French composer in the US. Following a trip to the States in 1922, Darius Milhaud was captivated by authentic jazz on the streets of Harlem, and it had a profound impact on his musical style. Bluesy harmonies and stomping rhythms bring this 1923 ballet to life.
