Tonight, the world-renowned pianist and conductor Pascal Rogé will perform creations by Claude Debussy and Francis Poulenc in the Morse Recital Hall, providing the Yale community with a snapshot into French musical history.

Rogé has been invited to Yale as part of the Horowitz Piano Series, a program of musical exploration organized by the Yale School of Music that aims to bring to New Haven the world’s greatest keyboard maestri. In the past, musical legends such as Leon Fleischer, Emmanuel Ax and Radu Lupu have played at Yale as part of this project.

Professor Melvin Chen, deputy dean of the Yale School of Music, said that Rogé, an expert in 20th-century French classical music, will bring a “new perspective” to the listeners, as the repertoire he will play may not be entirely familiar to some audience members. MORE
