Program

Olivier Moulin dedicates this piano-recital program to Claude  Debussy, a french  composer who claims an  important  legacy  from  the  great  french   musicians  of  the  baroque  era  (Rameau,  Couperin),  but  also  from  Frederic  Chopin,  whose  mastery   of  piano  form  and  writing  had  a  great  influence.

Also, the evening will be an occasion  to  listen  to  five  pieces  from  the  «  Hindu  Songs  and  Dances  »   written  by  Inayat  Khan  between  1913  and  1914.   This  recital  program  around  Debussy  is  structured  as  a  link  between  the  East  and  the  West.
