Bourgie Hall presents

Study Day - Revisiting the Legacy of Fauré

Tribute to Gabriel Fauré and Théodore Dubois

An important figure in Parisian musical life at the debut of the 20th century, Gabriel Fauré arouses interest just as much as he remains shrouded in mystery. This study day aims both to review the state of knowledge and present updates in light of the most recent research. Several aspects of his legacy will be addressed, including his activities at the head of musical societies, his impact on philosophers, the canonization of his art songs, and his establishment as a leading figure in the wake of his death. Together with this, the epistolary exchanges between one of Fauré’s contemporaries, Théodore Dubois, and one of his Canadian students, Guillaume Couture, will be discussed.

As this event is free, attendees will be admitted based on order of arrival and the number of places that are available.

Presented in French.

The day will conclude with a concert in tribute to Théodore Dubois at 7:30 p.m. (Bourgie Hall).

In collaboration with the Music Faculty of the Université de Montréal, the Palazzetto Bru Zane - Centre de musique romantique française (Italy) and the Équipe musique en France (OICRM)
