Duo Drugova-Broekaert : Around Lili Boulanger
On February 18, 2024 at 3:00PM
Stewart Hall Cultural Centre
This concert explores the world of the French composer Lili Boulanger (1893-1918) through a program for piano and violin. Musical performance alternates with commentaries illuminating the close ties that developed between Lili Boulanger and the composers who intersected with her world, such as Debussy, Fauré, Bacewicz and Piazzolla. By bringing together all these great artists into the same musical moment, we reimagine a 20th century French salon, where women had their place as much as men. How far would Lili’s destiny have taken her if illness had not taken her away at the tender age of twenty-four?
Uliana Drugova, violin; Michel-Alexandre Broekaert, piano
