Daubigny, Monet, Van Gogh: Impressions of Landscape

Before the Impressionists, French artist Charles-François Daubigny pushed the boundaries of traditional landscape. In the 1850s and 1860s, Daubigny anticipated and helped shape Impressionism by routinely painting outdoors to capture qualities of light and atmosphere, by launching a floating studio boat on the French rivers, and by exhibiting sketch-like works that critics assailed as “mere impressions.” He became a mentor, colleague, and friend to the Impressionists, especially Claude Monet and Camille Pissarro.

Premiere of Après with the NY Philharmonic

Franck Krawczyk is one of the three composers (along with Anthony Cheung and Peter Eötvös) with whom the late Henri Dutilleux shared the inaugural Marie-Josée Kravis Prize for New Music in 2011 (a prize awarded every two years to a composer for extraordinary artistic endeavor in the field of new music); each was commissioned to write a work for the Philharmonic to premiere. Franck Krawczyk started his musical training in Paris (piano, analysis, harmony), then continued in Lyon (composition), where he currently teaches chamber music at the Conservatory. He also won the Prix Hervé Dugardin from S.A.C.E.M. for his orchestral piece Ruines in 2000. He has cultivated friendships with artists from other disciplines, such as theatre, video, and dance, including Christian Boltanski and Jean Kalman, Peter Brook and Marie-Hélène Estienne, Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten, and Sonia Wieder-Atherton and Laurence Equilbey.
