Debussy To Be Topic Of Lecture/Concert At TWU


DENTON — Music, art, poetry and aroma will combine for a powerful experience in "Claude Debussy: Painter of Music," a lecture/concert by Dr. Richard Shuster, assistant professor of piano at Texas Woman’s University. The event will take place at 8 p.m. Wednesday, April 23 in the Margo Jones Performance Hall, located at Oakland and Sawyer streets on TWU’s Denton campus. Admission is free.

The presentation will include a brief lecture about the Impressionist painters and the Symbolist poets, as well as synesthesia, the color of sound and unification of the arts. A slide presentation will feature nearly 100 images of art fading in and out with the changing colors and phrases of the music during a complete performance of Debussy’s "Preludes, Book I."

Shuster recently completed his doctor of musical arts degree at the Eastman School of Music at the University of Rochester (New York), where he received a graduate fellowship award. He also was a Fulbright Fellow at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest, Hungary.
