Exposition Universelle 1889
For Solo Piano
Written By Tim P Manger


Exposition Universelle 1889


'Exposition Universelle 1889' is based on the (6 month) Paris Expo of 1889, and was inspired by the historical influence of the Far East, specifically the 'gamelan' (which was showcased during the expo).

European composers of the period (specifically Claude Debussy), were impacted greatly by the unusual harmonic and rhythmic nuances of the Eastern music they experienced.

As a result, 'Exposition Universelle 1889' is largely impressionistic in style, with several underlying themes in the diametric keys of B Major and D Flat Major, depicting the 'gamelan' (as a faster more rhythmic theme), set against the impressionist style of the late 19th Century.
