ABSTRACT
The article presents information about characteristics of the French composers born late in the last century. Musical enterprise can be found in the light-hearted works of Jacques Ibert whose works "Diane de Poitiers" and "Escales" are achieved with the acme of polish and refinement. One might wish that Ibert would be a little more serious sometimes. The somewhat austere approach of musician Georges Migot exercises a restraining influence, for Migot concentrated mainly upon alla capella choral works of some magnitude.
