The Boulanger sisters were pioneering musicians in the early 20th century. Lili was the first woman to win the Prix de Rome composition prize, and Nadia taught many students who went on to become famous, such as Aaron Copland, John Eliot Gardner and even Burt Bacharach! Debussy also features in this French afternoon, with three of his beautiful, evocative Preludes, and Ravel’s Sonata dedicated to his memory – a piece with echoes of both Debussy and the folk music of Hungary.
