The RNCM will share the centerpiece of their Debussy 100 Festival with us in a spectacular season finalé of works by Debussy as you may have never heard before – in transcription. Normally, transcriptions are second-best for classical purists, but Debussy had such a profound influence on composition over the last 100 years, that it makes sense to hear this influence in a fresh new way through the eyes of those he has inspired. The sensual textures and evocative colours are vivid reimaginings of well-loved works gathered from across his output, highlighting the composer’s irrepressible capacity for innovation and originality.

6.45pm Pre-Concert Foyer Music
