In the late 19th century, painters such as Monet, Renoir and Degas painted shimmering, light-filled pictures that came to be known as “Impressionist.” Not long after, Debussy and Ravel experimented with sound and harmonic color in their compositions in a manner that captured a fleeting impression or mood. Dr. Polli Chambers-Salazar performs a variety of piano works that feature the Impressionist style and discusses the connections between the art and music of that era.
