In 2018 it’ll be a hundred years ago 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 on the night are by Debussy himself, and by two composers who were influenced by his music. In between the music, writer and actor Bob Schwarze will bring to life the works of Debussy.
