Remembering Things Past: Proust and his music

Commemorate Marcel Proust and his seminal novel, Remembrance of Things Past with a stellar performance by pianist, Jérémie Favreau and violinist, Ken Aiso, on September 22, 2018.

Boston Court Pasadena presents this performance to remember Proust and his Music and the musical works that inspired Remembrance of Things Past.

Marcel Proust was a renowned French novelist primarily known as the author of “À la recherche du temps perdu.” The performance by Jérémie Favreau and Ken Aiso was inspired by this popular piece. Remembrance of Things Past is a seven volume novel that follows Proust’s recollections of his childhood and adulthood in the 19th century and 20th century aristocratic France.

In the wake of the two lecture-recitals on Proust and music they gave at UCLA and UCI, French pianist and lecturer Jérémie Favreau and world renowned violinist Ken Aiso are now coming to Boston Court to explore the fictional Vinteuil violin sonata in Marcel Proust’s seminal novel Remembrance of Things Past through the performance of the actual works that inspired it: Saint-Saëns and Franck’s Violin Sonatas, as well as Fauré’s Ballade for piano. The audience will experience a sensitive/sensorial approach to Proust through the music of the “Belle Epoque” that inspired his notoriously musical writing.

Jérémie Favreau will give a short preconcert lecture that will show how precise passages of the musical pieces played during the concert inspired precise passages of Proust’s Remembrance. A must for any Proust lover who is wondering what music hides behind the lines of the classic French writer Marcel Proust.
