70th Anniversary of the Publication of The Little Prince

By Rachael Small

The Little Prince was first published in French on April 6, 1943 by Reynal & Hitchcock, a now defunct publishing housed based in New York City. At the time, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, France’s renowned literary pilot, was preparing to leave the city where he had lived in exile since January 1941. This exile, the distance the war forced between him and those he loved, tormented him and he lamented living in New York “when my people are dying and suffering from the war."

French Composer Marc Marder at Tribeca and Season of Cambodia

By French Culture

In the movies, much is said of actors and directors. Composers of original scores on the other hand are less often recognized, although music represents a significant part of the emotional weight of most films. Paris-based composer Marc Marder is one example of a musician who has remained quietly behind the scenes.
