The Salon of Princesse de Polignac ~ In Search of Lost Time

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 reminiscence of the Parisian salon and its music that inspired Proust’s vignettes of his musical contemporaries in the most respected novel of the twentieth century !
