A show of delicious music to swoon over by all-French composers…well almost.
Featuring dreamy works by French women composers: Lili Boulanger, Melanie Bonis, a Muses favourite by Nadia Boulanger, Tailleferre from the hugely influential Les Six, a vibrant new work by young superstar Camille Pépin and a world premiere by Sally Greenaway (AUS), her sequel to her previous work for the Muses, Le Parc Monceau, inspired by French impressionist artists. Almost French was first performed at Plant Empire for Anywhere Festival 2022.
