At the turn of the 20th Century, France was the epicentre for musical innovation as artists sought to break away from the time-honoured traditions of the past. In this pursuit, composers discovered sounds that had never before been heard; Debussy went so far as to arrange the piano works of Satie for orchestra.
Through a similar process, faculty members Barry Tan, Geeta Das and Stefan Nazarevich will present new and unique arrangements of the favourite French music that you choose through our survey process. For an added delight, the trio will premiere a new piece by Stefan Nazarevich himself.
To vote (1 piece/set) fill out the survey that will go live via our home page between Sep 1 & Nov 19!
