Around Hélène de Montgeroult




Does the name Hélène de Montgeroult ring a bell? Maybe not, but this matinée concert offers the opportunity to find out more about a talented musician who, in the words of Élisabeth Vigée Le Brun, Marie-Antoinette’s portraitist, “made the keyboard talk”. The concert opens with one of her trio works and includes others by her contemporary Beethoven and the French musician Louise Farrenc. This will be followed by a discussion, mediated by Florence Badol-Bertrand, on the historical position of female composers and, indeed, female artists in general. Alongside Hélène de Montgeroult, pianist Edna Stern will interpret works by other women composers, Louise Farrenc and Lili Boulanger.
