Aspen Music Festival: Paris, City of Light

The theme of the 70th season of the Aspen Music Festival is “Paris, City of Light,” highlighting the rich musical legacy of the French capital both as a center of artistic creation and as a source of inspiration. The emphasis is on works of the 19th- and 20th centuries, from Debussy’s Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune to Boulez’s Le Marteau sans maître. Three sub-themes are explored in depth: “Impressionism in Music,” “Diaghilev Ballets Russes Composers,” and “American Composition Students of Nadia Boulanger.”
