WILLAIMSTOWN, Mass. — On Sunday, March 10 at 3 pm, the Clark Art Institute presents a lecture and performance by Roy Howat featuring the music of Belle Époque Paris. 
The event takes place in the Clark's auditorium, located in the Manton Research Center.
According to a press release:
Through music and illustrations, pianist and music scholar Roy Howat explores the rich vein of classical music produced by composers like Debussy, Ravel, Chabrier, and Fauré, especially in relation to the writings of Edgar Allan Poe. One of the most frequent discoveries of Howat's research is how meticulously precise and inventive these composers were in their aims and techniques.
Howat, an internationally acclaimed Steinway Artist, is renowned for his expertise in French music. He has shared his knowledge through lectures and masterclasses at American institutions like the Juilliard and Eastman Schools. Holding university positions worldwide, he serves as the Keyboard Research Fellow at London's Royal Academy of Music and is a Research Fellow at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
