Recorded Lecture/Recital by Fr. Maillet

October 28, 2022 | St. Mary's News

On October 21, Fr. Paul Maillet, St. Mary’s Director of Spiritual Life, presented a lecture-recital at The Schubert Club of Fairfield County in Connecticut. His program highlighted the differences and contexts of “Six Moments Musicaux” by both Schubert and Rachmaninoff.

As Fr. Maillet notes, “‘Moments musicaux’ . . . the name suggests evocative, improvisatory, and in some cases fleeting musical miniatures, as opposed to long, thought-out, and highly structured compositions. Two famous composers wrote sets of six moments musicaux: the early romantic, Franz Schubert and the late romantic, Sergei Rachmaninoff. Thus, the two sets can be seen as sort of “musical bookends” marking the span of nineteenth-century romantic piano literature.”

The Schubert Club recorded the event and uploaded it to YouTube.
