Tombeau De Claude Debussy

Following Claude Debussy’s death on 25 March 1918, his friend Henri Prunières invited ten leading composers to produce a memorial piece, a ‘tombeau’, in his honour. The collection of works provide a fascinating evocation of the sounds in the air in Paris at the time, as well as a demonstration of the esteem in which Debussy, considered by many to be the most influential composer of the twentieth century, was held. In addition to these ten works, the concert will include Heinz Holliger's Studie über Mehrklänge for solo oboe to accentuate the influence Debussy's music, and his fascination with impressionism, had on music in the modern era. 

This concert is the first in ANAM's Debussy100, a 12-month project to mark the 100th anniversary of the death of Claude Debussy. Led by a collection of national and international pianists, hear the complete piano and chamber music of Claude Debussy, including 100 titled movements for the keyboard.
