The Salon of Princesse de Polignac: Proust and His Vignettes of Debussy, Fauré, Satie and Ravel

PHOTO: CLARENCE AW

This year is the 100th death anniversary of French novelist Marcel Proust, who was known for his seven-volume novel In Search Of Lost Time. The early-20th century work features countless references to composers before and of his time. It was at the Parisian music salon of American-born heir Princesse de Polignac where the avant-garde premieres of living French composers were heard and where much of Proust's musical education took place. This two-day event - comprising an evening concert on the first day and two concerts for children on the second - is a reminiscence of the salon and the music that inspired Proust's vignettes of the composers in his novel.
