Masterworks I: French Moderns

October 7 @ 2:00 pm CDT

french moderns

Our tribute to the French Modern aesthetic opens with Debussy’s sensual and evanescent tone poem Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun, followed by his atmospheric and fluid Nocturnes. Flutist John McMurtery takes center stage for Debussy’s haunting Syrinx for solo flute before we begin our promenade through the changing tableaux of Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition.

PRESENTED IN PARTNERSHIP
Figge-French-Moderns


In 1874, Modest Mussorgsky was inspired to compose Pictures at an Exhibition after attending a showing of Viktor Hartmann’s art. Today, patients of the Genesis Cancer Center Institute can be inspired by a virtual tour of the Figge Art Museum with Genie the Robot. With help from the Living Proof Exhibit and BeamPro, Genie takes us on a tour to see her version of Pictures at an Exhibition at the Figge Art Museum.
