This recital will in small part be an oral lecture on my written dissertation "Discovering India in Western Art Music: An Exploration of Exoticism and Interculturality in works for Western Violin." I seek to explain the change over time of the representation of Indian classical music in Western violin works. I also seek to touch upon, if not a literal connection, then what I see to be an esoteric and spiritual bond between classical Indian and French approaches to music-making.
