La Musique Française

Cel­e­brate Mau­rice Rav­el’s birth­day with us as we nip across the Chan­nel to feast our ears on the music of some of the most mem­o­rable of French com­posers.

In addi­tion to M. Rav­el, we will be includ­ing works by Rameau, a per­son­al favourite, as well as Debussy, Poulenc, Fau­ré (anoth­er favourite), Satie, Berlioz and Chopin.

Most of the per­for­mances are tra­di­tion­al, but there will be some mod­ern inter­pre­ta­tions too, such as the music of Isao Tomi­ta and some light jazz.

The pic­ture shows one of Monet’s many paint­ings of the Japan­ese Bridge in his gar­den at Giverny.
