Le fin de siècle

Join pianist Haike Dietrich on her journey through the musical landscape in France, Russia and Norway around 1900, at her diploma examination concert.

Barbara Reyes and others

The fin de siècle was a period of great expectations for the unknown future. While Brahms was still composing his last pieces in the 1890s, several new artistic movements emerged. Composers left behind all traditions and searched for new musical genres and tone languages to create their own new personal style. For the first time in music history, this resulted in the co-existence of a vast diversity of musical genres and national styles. This moderated concert will present a musical journey full of contrasts through solo piano and chamber music pieces from French, Norwegian and Russian fin de siècle composers.
