Firework & Fantasien
Fri, June 4, 2021 6:30 PM, MDT
Join the gracious Ken Camper and me for an evening of fantasias and preludes by Brahms and Debussy! These works boast gorgeous motivic transformation as well as heartfelt harmony. In the second book of these preludes one may hear the greatest music ever written. Many current composers seem to draw inspiration from this set of 12. This mirrors Debussy's own love for and borrowing from the earlier style baroque.
