Our Piano Day concludes with a commemoration of the centenary of Debussy’s death with ten premieres, each starting with a minute of a Debussy solo piano piece before journeying into the composer’s own sound-world. The concert is framed with music by Debussy himself.
Commissioned by York Late Music 2018 for a premiere by James Willshire on 1st September 2018.
