Description

This lecture and performance focused on the changing identities in the work of Catalan composer Federico Mompou (1893–1987), who spent much of his life in Paris. Mompou's emphasis on psychological expressiveness in music found natural allies in “Les Six,” an avant-garde group of young composers formed by Erik Satie (1866–1925). Mompou's work also reveals influences of French music at the turn of the 20th Century and of the Paris Conservatory, where he studied.
