By combining the music of Gabriel Fauré, the poetry of Paul Verlaine and the art of Antoine Watteau, Professor Cassagne will briefly explain how 19th century France longed for the good old days of pre-Revolution of 1789.  There will be in-depth analysis of the song “Mandoline” by Gabriel Fauré.  Audience participation may be required. Mandoline will be sung by French 305 student Henry McKenna and accompanied by Macalester pianist Mindy Eschedor.
