The French pianist Olivier Moulin studied under Eric Heidsieck and Gery Moutier at the Conservatoire National Superieur de Musique of Lyon, where he was unanimously awarded first prize with honors. After advanced studies in the same institution, he continued his training in Austria at the Salzburg Mozarteum in the classes of Karl – Heinz Kammerling and Clemens Hagen, where he obtained a Master of Arts with highest honors.
Claude Debussy is a French composer claiming an important legacy from the French musicians of the baroque era. His discovery of exotic music during Universal Exhibition of Paris in 1889 lead him to meet the Indian sufi musician Hazrat I. Khan. The recital will be the occasion to listen to pieces from the Hindu Songs and Dances by H.I. Khan, as well as Chopin, Rameau and Debussy.
