An online debut of exceptionally crafted pre-recorded content, coupled with musician + audience videochat.


Paul Roberts is the artistic director of the international summer school for pianists Music at Chateau d’Aix, in southern France. In London he teaches at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, where he has been awarded an Honorary Fellowship (FGS). His new book, Reading Franz Liszt, in which he illuminates the literary inspiration underlying many of Liszt’s major piano works, will be published in May next year

What's the music?

Paul Roberts Piano

Some of the Debussy landscape pieces, including La Cathédrale Engloutie and Reflets dans l’Eau in relation to Monet’s Poplar Trees and Nymphéas. Paul will also talk about the influence of oriental art on the Impressionist painters, especially Japanese prints (that Debussy loved and collected), and illustrate this with pieces from Image Book 2, especially Les Cloches à Travers les Feuilles.
