The Magical World of Claude Debussy

Fantastic Journeys

Iwan concludes his homage to Claude Debussy with a programme of piano music that evokes fantastic images from across the world. In Debussy’s ‘Estampes’ and ‘Preludes’ the musical journey takes in Japanese pagodas, Spanish nightlife, Italian hills and French gardens. With the vibrant sounds of Francis Poulenc’s ‘Napoli’ suite and Emmanuel Chabrier’s rumbustious Bourrée fantasque, magical islands conjured up in pieces by John Ireland, Cyril Scott and Eric Jones, and Johannes Brahms’s gripping Seven Fantasies, this promises to be a scintillating experience.
