Sylvain Caron, lecturer
Music students from the Université de Montréal
Situated at the crossroads of poetry, music, and painting, the Symbolist movement permeated the arts and sparked imagination in the Paris of 1900. In addition to the artistic works that were produced, the numerous essays, manifestos, journals, parlours, critiques, exhibitions, and concerts confirm its influence even through the Post-Impressionist movement. In this conference, in connection with the MMFA’s Paris 1900 and Post-Impressionism exhibit, Fauré’s mélodies will be performed by the finest students of the Université de Montréal’s Music Faculty, highlighting the different ways in which the Symbolist movement influenced the imagination of artists, linking painting and music.
Presented in collaboration with the OICRM and the Université de Montréal’s Music Faculty
