The Pendulum Swings: Impressionism – Postmodernism

Thursday, March 22, 2018 | 7:30pm
First Presbyterian Church, Baton Rouge

In the history of western music, it is hard to find greater rebel than Claude Debussy. Considered groundbreaking by academics and highly controversial by traditionalists, Debussy gave voice to the Impressionist Movement, laced with personal sentiment and emotions. Ironically, within 20 years, his music gave rise to another group of rebels spawning an even more powerful movement and return to logic, structure and reason – the genesis of Postmodernism and the Polystylism of Alfred Schnittke.
