2019 Cliburn Festival: Iconic Paris
Featuring pianists Dasol Kim, Louis Schwizgebel, and Joyce Yang; and the Rolston String Quartet
In the early 20th-century, Paris experienced a Golden Age, becoming a center of intellectualism, art, politics, and innovation. It saw the opening of the World Fair, the construction of the Eiffel Tower, the perfection of champagne, major advancements in film, aviation, and medicine—and the ideal environment for artists to flourish: painters from Matisse to Picasso, and a generation of composers who, living in Paris, ushered in the new era of Modernism. A stellar group of artists-in-residence take us on a journey through one of the most inspired times in musical history.
