French composer Vincent d'lndy was a tireless promoter of his fellow countrymen's music, both at home and abroad. He served in the Franco-Prussian War of 1870 and was frustrated by his inability to serve his country again in the First World War, even though he was by then 63 years old.
French regionalism was in his blood and he found inspiration in the countryside for his music, In today's programme Donald Macleod considers different aspects of the composer's nationalist sympathies.
