Description

Debussy's Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp is contrasted with Ravel's very different Sonatine for the same combination. Rehana Browne flute George White viola Mary Reid harpThis is a part of the series of lectures and concerts, European Capitals of Music. Famous musical capitals provide the framework for this series of lectures with live music. The first three concentrate not only on 19th century Vienna, but on Schubert in Vienna and writing chamber music. Why did this music happen then, where was it played, who provoked, preformed and paid for it. And was it considered successful?The final three ask similar questions of other capital cities: 20th century chamber music in Paris, baroque music in London under the shadow of Handel, and virtuoso violin playing in Rome focused on Corelli, the 300th anniversary of whose death is being celebrated this season.The works in each programme are played by present members of the Royal Academy of Music.The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website:http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/paris-debussy-and-ravelGresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597.
