What is it that inspires an artist? The beauty is that there is no one answer. Each composer speaks their music in their native language with added hues of life experiences to give depth to their palette. Many French composers were obsessed with musical colors from exotic countries that they had absorbed from their travels. Musique Déjà Vu offers an auditory travelogue featuring ancient voices in French chamber music of modern times.
Musique Déjà Vu offers an auditory travelogue featuring ancient voices in French chamber music of modern times. This performance features the beloved quintet combination of flute, string trio & harp. Decidedly French – this chamber music by Albert Roussel, Claude Debussy, Marcel Tournier and André Jolivet is inspired and enhanced by the composers’ fascination with Africa, China, sea voyages, Greek mythology & ancient chants.
The music of this concert is impressionistic, sensuous, poignant, playful, virtuosic and provocative.
