On Thursday 19th June Dorchester will be treated to a concert by an internationally-acclaimed musician.
Emilie Capulet made her solo debut at the age of 14 in her native France. Since then she has studied under eminent concert pianists in Australia and London, achieving her Masters of Music degree in 2001.
Recent engagements include a concert tour of Canada and France. She has also performed at Winchester Cathedral, Buxton Opera House and the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge. Emilie is regularly invited as guest artist on musical river cruises down the Danube and Rhine and on luxury cruise liners. In 2013 she gave several recitals on board Cunard’s Queen Mary 2.
In addition to her distinguished solo career, Emilie has a strong reputation as a guest speaker, talking about the relationships between music, literature and painting. She has recently been invited to give pre-performance lectures by Glyndebourne on their current touring season.
Emilie has written many articles on Impressionist music, Modernism and the musicalisation of fiction and has recently published a book on Virginia Woolf and Music.
The concert will feature works by Maurice Ravel and will last approximately one hour. Everyone is welcome and to cover costs, a small donation of £3.00 is requested. The concert will take place in the Museum’s Victorian Gallery at 1.00pm on Thursday 19th June.
