  • Just about ANY time is a good time to be in Paris, but chances are, given your druthers, you wouldn’t have chosen to be there in 1942. The city was occupied by German troops, and World War II had several more dismal years to grind on.

  • Performers need composers and composers need performers. And some performers really like composers–and vice versa.
