#var:page_name# cover

At the turn of the 20th Century, France was the epicentre for musical innovation as artists sought to break away from the time-honoured traditions of the past. In this pursuit, composers discovered sounds that had never before been heard; Debussy went so far as to arrange the piano works of Satie for orchestra.

Through a similar process, faculty members Barry Tan, Geeta Das and Stefan Nazarevich will present new and unique arrangements of the favourite French music that you have chosen through our survey process (results below). For an added delight, the trio will premiere a new piece by Stefan Nazarevich himself.

Concert repertoire:
Gymnopedie no.1 by Erik Satie
Habanera from Carmen by Georges Bizet
The Swan from Carnival of the Animals by Camille Saint-Saens
Original work by Stefan Nazarevich
