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

Renowned pianist and Sydney Conservatorium of Music lecturer Scott Davie 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.

Event to be accompanied by French themed refreshments.
