In order to commemorate the centennial of the battle of Verdun as well as Franco-German frienship, pianists Jérémie Favreau and Lorenzo Marasso will give a free concert called ‘Homage to the afternoon of the Unknown Soldier: 100 years after Verdun’ on December 14, at 7pm.
They have chosen a selection of French and German masterpieces for two pianos, ranging from French impressionism to German romanticism:
– Six Epigraphes Antiques and En Blanc et en Noir by Claude Debussy, two pieces written in 1915
– Les Variations des Esprits by Robert Schumann and their adaptation by Johannes Brahms
– Etudes en forme de canon by Schumann, transcribed by Debussy
