MUSIC DAWN TO DUSK (120mins)
ARIANE GRAY-HUBERT(France), an accomplished musician (Paris, Vienna, Hanover) and exceptional classical pianist, shows a great versatility in several musical domains that include piano solo, chamber music and vocal accompaniment. She is a soloist nonpareil, with a vast and varied repertoire that encompasses Bach to Beethoven as well as 20th century composers. In an effort to stimulate new cultural exchanges, she initiated a series of musical events in 1996, concerning different themes in France and abroad, especially the Baltic States. She was invited to major festivals in India in 1997 and 1998.
She returned to India in 2000 for a series of concerts, which led to a closer study of the connection between music rhythms and the day/night cycle in Indian music with Western music. She explores and reveals through original programs the correspondence between various musical traditions and brings an element of spiritualism to her programmes which is deeply Indian in nature. Her latest concert in India in March 2001 with the ICCR, echoes the influences with Indian ragas and Western composers.
