A Frenchman in New York (Darius Milhaud, 1962)

Darius Milhaud composed his Frenchman in New York
in 1962, after a visit to the Big Apple.
Arthur Fiedler made the only LP recording of the work
for RCA two years later. The LP had of course Gershwin’s
American in Paris on the reverse, but has unfortunately
been available only very shortly.
