The Danish National Symphony performs music by Lili Boulanger on the EBU, Wed 3/29 @ 8pm


Sometimes compared to Claude Debussy and Gabriel Fauré, Lili Boulanger's compositional style was progressive for her time. D’un Matin de Printemps (One Spring Morning) is a prime example of her musical expression, with the flourishes in melodies and solo lines, as well as the complicated rhythmic accompaniments. It is the last orchestral work completed by Boulanger before her untimely death in 1918 at just 25 years of age.
