Anne Queffélec, piano
Anne Queffélec is one of her generation’s best loved pianists. Alone on the Musée d'Orsay auditorium’s stage, she’ll be summoning up Ravel and Debussy, the great composers of the musical impressionist movement, along with Reynaldo Hahn, another apt choice, for this concert relating to the “Paris 1874, the Impressionist Moment” exhibition presented from March 26 to July 14, 2024.
Impressionism is known above all for the pictorial production of its great masters, such artists as Monet, Renoir, Sisley and Morisot. But the movement’s tenets were also expressed through music. Debussy and then Ravel were its great composers. The highly talented Anne Queffélec will be selecting some of their works to provide us with a program whose color will be revealed, even heightened, by the pianist’s virtuosity. Reynaldo Hahn, whose compositions drew inspiration from texts by writers such as Verlaine, who extended the movement to literature, will be adding his own touch to the picture.
