"Réalités Invisibles" — Music from the Life of Marcel Proust
The Helicon Ensemble
James Roe, Artistic Director
Marcel Proust—a writer consumed by the exploration of memory—was a famous lover of music, the invisible art that only exists in the passage of time. To coincide with the exhibitions David, Delacroix, and Revolutionary France: Drawings from the Louvre and Ingres at the Morgan, the Morgan presents the Helicon Ensemble in an evening of French music important in Proust's life and work, with readings from Remembrance of Things Past by noted poet and translator Richard Howard.
