on Debussy and Ravel

Monday, February 16, 2004 at 8 pm

Join the Department of Music for an evening of conversation and music with acclaimed pianist Alessandra Ammara on Debussy and Ravel.

"Young Ammara was impressive not only for the beauty and variety of her phrasing, for the luminous clarity of her virtuosity and evident control of all expressive means, but above all for her stylistic knowledge that...never seemed to lose the impression of the freshness of a youthful fantasy." (Leonardo Pinzauti, La Nazione, Firenze)
