Toll Gavel United Church


Since time immemorial, and whatever their geographical starting point, people have looked to their East as a source of inspiration, with daily refreshment of sunrise. The east-meets-west dialogue in the modern world is perhaps not as we think, and here we explore a wide range of Eastern influences on mostly Western music. The inception of worldwide cultural and industrial exhibitions was part of a journey towards today’s globalism; in the 1891 Paris Exhibition, French musicians heard for the first time the sound of the Javanese gamelan. Many of Debussy’s greatest works nod to this sound-world, including his famous symphonic poem Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune. This chamber arrangement of that piece was formed for a set of soirées hosted by Schoenberg, and is scored for eleven players.
