Syrinx or La Flûte de Pan (1913) by Claude Debussy:
A key work in the repertoire for flute alone,
its history, interpretation and a meeting between music and theatre.
Dr. Anders Ljungar-Chapelon
You will be amazed by the vast historical knowledge and research that Dr. Ljungar-Chapelon can share with you about this extraordinary piece. Details concerning documents from his research such as photos from the first performance, the program from the first performance, the handwritten score he found in Brussels, together with a short movie (6 minutes) that shows a realization and an interpretation he did some years ago with two actresses of the scene La Grotte de Pan in the play Psyché (1913) by Gabriel Mourey to whom Debussy wrote Syrinx or La Flûte de Pan. Dr. Ljungar-Chapelon will also provide suggestions on how to practice the piece in question using unique exercise suggestions.
