The Salon of Princesse de Polignac ~ Proust and his vignettes of Debussy, Fauré, Satie and Ravel

2022 is the 100th death anniversary of the great French novelist Marcel Proust.  Known for his seven-volume novel À la recherche du temps perdu (In Search of Lost Time) that features countless references to composers before and of his time – it was in fact at the Parisian music salon of Princesse de Polignac where avant-garde premieres of living French composers were heard – that much of Proust’s musical education took place.

Join us on this special one-night only reminiscence of this Parisian salon and its music that inspired Proust’s vignettes of Debussy, Fauré, Satie and Ravel in the most respected novel of the twentieth century !
