Main Programme

Venue: Monastery of Alcobaça - D. Dinis Cloyster

Stories, songs and dances for four-hand piano

This programme is an open window on the musical life of Paris in the transition between the 19th and 20th centuries. Through works for piano four hands - a very widespread formation at the time - we remember four french composers who were very different from each other. Saint-Saëns and Fauré were teacher and pupil. Debussy and Saint-Saëns were considered, and considered themselves, incompatible. Chaminade, a woman, imposed herself in an exclusively male world. Despite the differences between composers and musical languages, there are links that unite the themes of the movements that follow here. Among others, the dance scenes, the lullabies or dream songs, and the inspiration in distant worlds.
