Debussy’s Paris with Catherine Kautsky

October 10, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Politics, art, literature, not to mention racism, orientalism, and nationalism – a potent mix in fin-de siècle Paris. Come hear how Claude Debussy, who died precisely 100 years ago, combined them all in music whose sheer beauty and elegance belies its revolutionary impact on the new century. Pianist, Catherine Kautsky, whose recent book, Debussy’s Paris: Piano Portraits of the Belle Époque, was touted by concert pianist, Richard Goode as, “a wonderful book, a kind of total immersion in the Debussyan magic,” will perform, as well as guide us knowledgeably through Paris, “the capital of the nineteenth century,” as it careens into a turbulent modernism.
