“Mostly Debussy” is a series of piano lecture-recitals that leads up to year 2018, which will mark the 100th anniversary of Claude Debussy’s death.
During World War I, Debussy agreed to assist his publisher, Auguste Durand, in producing a complete French edition of Chopin’s works, offering a substitute for the banned German editions. Revising all of Chopin’s studies unquestionably inspired Debussy. This lecture-recital features nine works by Chopin and Debussy, including a rare performance of Debussy’s Etude retrouvée, which was first drafted (then eventually abandoned and replaced by Pour les arpèges composés by the composer), but never got published among the final Twelve Studies.
