24 February @ Government House Ballroom ∙
Presented by: Jean-Efflam Bavouzet ∙
Charismatic French pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet shares his love of the music of Claude Debussy in this fascinating musical adventure.
There is no music quite like Debussy’s for evoking a feeling of the beauty and mystery of France. His use of influences from the Far East, Russia, Spain and the Middle East broke the rules of Western harmony and revolutionised piano music. This four-hour classical music treat features unmissable selections played by one of the most engaging live performers of his generation and interspersed with lively discussion.
Moving from the early piano miniatures to the visionary impressionism of the Images and Préludes, and beyond – into the transcendent clarity and fantasy of the Etudes – this comprehensive musical portrait provides the perfect introduction to Debussy and a chance to explore the limitless imagination of this masterful musical impressionist.
