Widely regarded as one of the greatest pedagogues of the 20th century, Nadia Boulanger had composers from all over the world flock to her Parisian studio for tuition, particularly those from North America. Through a rigorous program of counterpoint, harmony, musical analysis, and sightreading tailored to each student, the Mademoiselle (as she liked to be known) sought to help them find their unique musical voice.

In this program, Luminescence showcases the works of her American students through different periods of her life, from her earliest American students in Aaron Copland and Elliott Carter through to those such as Phillip Glass who came to her towards the end of her life. There is an Australian connection in the composer Peggy Glanville-Hicks, who became an American citizen after emigrating to the US with Mlle Boulanger's help. Mlle. Boulanger herself was a composer who stopped composing after the death of her younger sister Lili.
