A regular radio broadcast on the Chaîne parisienne channel
Presentation: Pierre Divoire
In the broadcast of 17 January 1961, Pierre Arvay is interviewed and talks about some pieces of his music, chosen by the presenter. He describes how he became a composer of songs and symphonic music, his rejection of musical pigeon-holing and explains how he got the idea of creating his first record of library music (Musiques de scènes), which was the first French 33RPM record in the genre.
