Program Notes

Montmartre March, from Wood's Paris Suite, is in a fast-moving, delicate style which is unique to the traditional march idiom. Wood visited Paris frequently and knew the Montmartre section well – for centuries it was a village outside the walls of Paris, but it is now within the city limits. With its steep twisting street and picturesque houses, it still retains a village appearance. As the name indicates, Montmartre is on a mountain (more accurately, a hill) in the section of Paris north of the Seine River known as the Right Bank. The area is famous for the Sacré Coeur Church, the view of Paris, and also for its cafes and night life.
