World Music 1

Impressionism

Wednesday, February 22, 2023, 10am
John and Jeanne Rowe Performance and Learning Center
Tom Cimarusti, Program Coordinator and Professor of Music History, Florida Gulf Coast University

Throughout history, music and art have been often intertwined in ways that have created some of the greatest masterpieces in Western music. How have composers used art as inspiration? And how did such composers transform musical language in order to musically replicate artistic styles? This series examines two artistic movements, Impressionism and Surrealism, and how works by Claude Monet and Salvador Dalí influenced the musical style of select composers in France and America.

During the Impressionism lecture, we will discuss works by composers such as Debussy and Ravel, and artists such as Monet and Renoir.
