tribute to claude debussy

claude debussy (1862-1918)


In 2018 is it a hundred years since the French composer Claude Debussy died. With this concert the New European Ensemble combines Debussy's music with his critical writing. The pieces you will hear are by Debussy himself, and by two contemporary composers who were strongly influenced by his music. In between the music, writer and actor Bob Schwarze brings to life the writer Debussy.
