“I am trying to do ‘something different – an effect of reality’,” wrote French composer Claude Debussy in a letter in 1908, the year before beginning work on his first book of piano preludes.
Pianist Sarah Hagen will perform the intricate set – music perfectly suited for a wintry day – at Studio Live (2679 Beaufort Ave., Cumberland) on Friday, Feb. 8.
The recital will include an extensive introduction illuminating the hidden corners of the 12 marvellously imaginative and colorful works.
The 75-minute program will be offered twice, with performances at 10:30 a.m. and at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets are $23, and can be purchased online at sarahhagen.tickit.ca and at the door, if available.
