ANAM AT THE CONVENT: ARITHMETIC OF SOUND

This exquisitely curated program is like a conversation with modernism. What does ‘modern’ music sound like? What makes it sound ‘modern’? How widely did its influence reach across the planet? At the head of the table is Debussy, and 13 of his keyboard preludes. You can hear the world of music breaking free of Romantic tradition in these pieces, as Debussy evokes sensations (The Sounds and Fragrances Swirl Through the Evening Air) and objects (Dead Leaves) with a glowing sonority that acted like a beacon to composers who followed: this is music both hazy and precise, mysterious and explicit.
