French composers in the 20th century reinvented melody through impressionism and neo-classicism. The melodic works by Gabriel Faure, Jean Cras and Albert Roussel were written at a time when jazz sounds from the United States had crossed the pond. Rounding out this imaginative and evocative program is a jazz riff on the baroque style by living composer Noam Elkies.
