Description

From Lully to Messiaen: Observations on 300 years of French Art-Music

In the Museum's iconic Instrument Room as part of the Cable Station, join renowned pianist and Sydney Conservatorium of Music lecturer Scott Davie who will explore developments in French art-music from the end of the 17th century to the late 20th century.

Beginning with music composed for Louis XIV by Jean-Baptiste Lully, and his later contemporaries François Couperin and Rameau, Scott will outline how a period of distinction led to regression and artistic stagnation in the Classical period. From the 1830s, however, French music commenced a triumphal return to the international stage, as music by composers such as Berlioz, Bizet, Saint-Saëns, Massenet, Fauré, Debussy, Ravel, and Messiaen, attests.

Scott's presentation - in a Museum with a fundamental French connection - will also include a piano recital.
