Bastille Day

July 13, 2020. Bastille Day! Le 14 juillet! Fête nationale! Yes, the national day of France is this week and while we may not be able to hop readily onto Air France and saunter down the Champs-Élysées, we can nevertheless mark the occasion with a very French album of the week, Compositrices.

Bonjour! Perhaps it’s French food you savor—a crusty baguette with a delicious frommage, a refreshing glass of French vin. Perhaps French couture or architecture delights you, or French art. At WRTI 90.1, our listeners adore French music, whose hallmarks are elegance, clarity, and devotion to sonic beauty.
