Libor Pešek's Impressions

Smetana Hall in Municipal House, 7:00 PM

Monday Jul 03

Im­pres­sion­ist mu­sic re­quires we en­gage our ears in just the same way we en­gage our eyes when ap­pre­ci­at­ing the fa­mous works of Monet, Gau­gin and De­bussy – we sur­ren­der to the magic per­vad­ing our bod­ies and minds and al­low it to sweep us off our feet.

CNSO chief con­duc­tor Li­bor Pešek warmly in­vites his fans to a con­cert com­pris­ing his favourite com­po­si­tions fea­tur­ing the works of im­pres­sion­ists Claude De­bussy and Mau­rice Ravel. It’s fair to say that the two com­posers weren’t the best of bud­dies, though it’s also true that on hear­ing De­bussy’s sym­phonic poem Pre­lude to the Af­ter­noon of a Faun, Ravel de­clared this to be his deathbed tune of choice. We cer­tainly don’t wish such a fate on any of you, dear lis­ten­ers.  Just make sure plenty of you at­tend to make it ex­tra spe­cial.
