Perth PH1 5HZ
Join pianist Danny Driver and soprano Laura Ruhí Vidal for a colourful programme that interlaces piano music and song written between 1903 and 1917. Debussy’s stately evocation of ancient Greek art and his mystical conjuring of an evening of Moorish Granada introduce song cycles by Ravel and Falla. The recital closes with Ravel’s piano work Le Tombeau de Couperin, an intimate yet virtuosic homage to French baroque keyboard tradition, and at the same time a memorial to friends and acquaintances killed in the Great War.
Programme: Debussy Danseuses de Delphes (from Préludes, Book 1) Ravel Cinq mélodies populaires Grecques Debussy La Soirée dans Grénade (from Estampes) Falla Siete Canciones Populares Españolas Ravel Le Tombeau de Couperin
