Program: In the mid to late 19th century, French composers brought new sensibilities to music, including harmonic sensuality, nuanced instrumental colors, and poetic idea of form. Debussy forever changed the art of music with his floating harmonies, fleeting rhythms, and the conviction that pleasure was the guiding principle of composition.
Although she lived to be only 24 years old, the brilliant composer Lili Boulanger, influenced by Debussy and her mentor Gabriel Fauré, wrote sensitive, lyrical, and colorful music that reveals the emergence of a distinctive personality. The first woman to win the Prix de Rome, Boulanger altered French society‘s notions of women in music.
Added to this colorful, evocative sound world is a new work based on the optical illusions of MC Escher by composer Roger Zare.
