Following his return from his first trip to Polynesia, Gauguin moved in bohemian circles in Europe, transmitting his fascination with the exotic to other artists of the period including leading musicians. Among them was Ravel, who wrote works that reveal an interest in nature provoked by the discovery of distant, unspoiled places, and Debussy, whose discovery of the sounds of non-European musical instruments resulted in the appearance of scales based on new, non-European tonal ranges in his work. Together with music by these two great composers, the present concert will also include works by musicians from the circle of Gauguin’s young friend William Molard and by the English composer Frederick Delius. The evolution of their style can be linked to the development of Post-impressionism, characterised as it is by compositions that deploy a radical harmonic palette of a type comparable to that transmitted by Gauguin through colour.
All Friends wishing to do so can bring one more guest than that specified in their membership type. Tickets are on sale from 4 December, on tels: 902 760 511 and 911 278 222 or from the Museum’s website. Available until all seats sold.
