French music has prided itself on its separateness for ages. In the 1st half of the 19th century, it became widely associated with neoclassicism - a current that valued balance, clarity of form, emotional frugality and a sense of humour modelled on the 18th-century Viennese classicism, over the excessive exuberance and overexpression of the late romantic period. Nadia Boulanger was one of the greatest neoclassicists and a legendary teacher to younger generations of composers, many of whom followed in her footsteps. Her Paris classroom was a shrine nearly all young Polish composers of the interwar generation considered worthy of a pilgrimage. The most prominent one of those was Grażyna Bacewicz, whose own student, Piotr Moss, followed into her footsteps, also honing his skill in Paris. Those were already the final years of Boulanger’s activity, but meeting her left such a strong mark on the Polish composer’s creative imagination that he has now dedicated his latest piece, Mademoiselle – hommage à Nadia Boulanger, to his professor. This year, the composer, who continuously maintains close ties to the city of Paris, celebrates his 75th birthday and 55 years of artistic activity. His work will be performed alongside one by Boulanger herself.

Albert Roussel – the greatest French composer of symphonic works in the first half of the 20th century – did not submit to the influence of neoclassicism entirely, yet he certainly shared the current’s enthusiasts’ passion for clear form, regular themes and prominent rhythms. The ballet Bachus and Ariadne is one of his most magnificent scores. The greatest hit of the concert, however, is going to be Claude Debussy’s 1894 Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun – an earnest of the French separateness of the century to come.
