Marcel Proust: Music Remembered

Straight to the heart of Marcel Proust’s world, this concert commemorates the centenary of the author’s death by spotlighting chamber music by some of his favourite composers: Debussy, Fauré, Franck, Hahn, and Ravel. Excerpts will be read from his magnum opus In Search of Lost Time alongside the music, illuminating the exquisite sensitivity and the genius of this writer.
