Music: Sun Nov 6


The quest for musical meaning in spontaneous improvisational acts seems to underly Claude Debussy’s 24 Preludes for piano. The “prelude” evokes a tradition of improvised solo performances as a means of introducing something larger, more ordered, and more structured. Tellingly, Debussy reserves titles for his “Preludes”
until each piece’s conclusion: sense and meaning are distilled from the chaos of the creative act. Read on for programming details, and stay tuned for spoken introductions and a performance from CUUC’s own Creighton Cray!
