The Salon of Princesse de Polignac

2022 marks the 100th death anniversary of the great French novelist Marcel Proust. Known for his seven-volume novel “À la recherche du temps perdu” (In Search of Lost Time) that features countless references to composers before and of his time – it was in fact at the Parisian music salon of Princesse de Polignac where avant-garde premieres of living French composers were heard – that much of Proust’s musical education took place.

Featuring Italian pianist Luca Buratto, Singaporean concert violinist Tang Tee Khoon, in close consultation with Paolo Di Leo, Senior Lecturer of Philosophy from the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD), this special one-night only concert will serve as a reminiscence of this Parisian salon and its music that inspired Proust’s vignettes of Debussy, Fauré, Satie and Ravel in the most respected novel of the twentieth century.
