|Today is in fact the twentieth anniversary of the Festival of Music in France. It was conceived by a man whose name is known by all here, Jack Lang. As Minister of Culture, M. Lang hoped to bring to fruition the idea of a holiday that was neither religious, nor military, nor political in nature. He wanted a holiday for art. The art he chose was music.|
