Description: Melodies From Paris  Tags: Melodies From Paris

On 6 May 2016, the French soprano Laetitia Grimaldi and pianist Ammiel Bushakevitz offer a programme of Romantic French songs, presented in the style of a Parisian salon concert from the belle époque, at the Bloemfontein Campus. From the heights of Marcel Proust to the decadence of the Moulin Rouge, the belle époque (circa 1871-1914) was a time when culture flourished more than ever in Paris. The salons of Paris became places where poets, painters, and composers would meet to share their art.

Items on the performance list include: Henri Duparc:  L'Invitation au voyage; Soupir, Chanson triste,  Franz Liszt:  Jeux d'eaux à la villa d'Este,  Gabriel Fauré:  Le secret; Clair de lune; Romance sans paroles, Op. 17 No. 3, Jean-Philippe Rameau:  Rigaudon, from Dardanus (trans. Godowsky), Reynaldo Hahn:  À Chloris; Quand je fut pris au pavillon, Charles Gounod:  Le premier jour de mai; Venise; Viens! Les gazons sont verts,  Georges Bizet:  Chansons-mélodies: Extase, Joseph Cantaloube:  Baïlèro, from Chants d'Auvergne, Charles-Valentin Alkan:  Recueil de chants, Op. 38 No. 1, Léo Delibes: Chant de l'almée; Les filles de Cadix.
