“From the Salon to the Armistice: French Music”

  1. Sunday October 21 3:00pm
Earl V. Moore Building, Britton Recital Hall

The program will trace developments in French music from salon-style duo works by Pauline Viardot and Lili Boulanger to the emotional depths attained by the Nocturne no. 13 by Fauré and the Poème Elegiaque by Ysaÿe. The program will conclude with a series of transcriptions and the sonata by Debussy.

This performance is one of a number of SMTD events dedicated to the 100th anniversary commemoration of the death of Debussy (1862-1918).
