Swire Classic Insights: Monet and Debussy –
Grand Hall, Lee Shau Kee Lecture Centre, Centennial Campus, The University of Hong Kong
Impressionism: the sensual play of light and shade. Monet was a master of this style in painting. Debussy objected when the word was used to describe his music, yet we still call him an impressionist. In this concert, conductor Jung-Ho Pak explores the links between Monet’s art and Debussy’s music. From its inspirations in Japanese art and French poetry, to the great masterpieces of Water Lilies and the Prelude to The Afternoon of a Faun – join us for an exploration of luminous beauty.
