Debussy’s Préludes at the Auditorium of the Louvre in November 2017

The Auditorium of the Louvre hosts excellent concerts of classical music on a regular basis. The next remarkable event with pianist Denis Kozhukhin is held on November 8, 2017 at 8 p.m. and he will perform pieces by Claude Debussy as well as by Georg Friedrich Handel and Johannes Brahms.

Fall is here, cold days are coming while leaves fall. It’s the perfect time for a classical music concert and here’s a quality one.

Within the Louvre museum, pianist Denis Kozhukhin is back on the stage of the Auditorium, where everything started a dozen years ago, to perform Claude Debussy’s Préludes.

Rumor has it that Danseuses de Delphes [Dancers of Delphi] – first piece of Préludes – has been inspired by a visit of the Louvre where he fell in love with the sculpted group of the sanctuary of Pythian Apollon in Delphi.

Full of antique Greece exoticism, Debussy created an ethereal and very light piece echoing the current compelling exhibition about drawing in the open-air.

The program is completed by two guests and here is the detail:

  • Georg Friedrich Handel: Suite No 7 in G minor, HWV432
  • Johannes Brahms: three Intermezzi op. 117
  • Claude Debussy: Préludes, Book I

A concert you shouldn’t miss after paying a visit to the museum!
