Salon Séance : Debussy in Persona

Thursday, April 29, 7:30 pm


Salon Séance dramatizes the performer’s journey in understanding masterworks of the past in a unique presentation: concert with incidental theatre. Framed as a séance, the film Debussy in Persona reveals a more human side of the French composer, providing insights and depths into his later works. The conversation gets heated as the musicians pose the central question: can art be separated from the artist?
