“Pure Debussy” – A tribute on the 100th anniversary of his death

7-Debussy

March 25th 2018 marks 100 years to the day since the death of French impressionist composer, Achille-Claude Debussy, better known today simply as Claude Debussy. He himself however wasn’t particularly fond of the term “impressionist”, preferring instead to call himself a “symbolist” in line with the literary movement manifest in France towards the end of the 19th century. Irrespective of terms though, one thing is certain: the use, by the composer, of non-traditional (up till then) tonalities and the extensive use of chromaticism are both elements which influenced many composers who followed. An evening then with – for some, maybe – novel but fascinating tonal colours, through the enchanting combination of flute, viola and harp.

Cl. Debussy:
Syrinx for flute solo
Sonata for flute, viola & harp
Arabesque no. 1 (arr. for harp)
Beau soir (arr. for viola and harp)
Nuit d’étoiles (arr. for viola and harp)
Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune (arr. for flute and harp)
Le petit nègre (arr. for flute and viola)
“Doctor Gradus ad Parnassum”, “The little shepherd” and “Golliwog’s cakewalk” from Children’s corner Suite (arr. for flute, viola and harp)

Virginie Bove (flute)
Krzysztof Wrobel (viola)
Angela Madjarova (harp)
