In this concert of “Essential Debussy”, conductor Francois-Xavier Roth celebrates the centenary of the death of Claude Debussy with several of his most celebrated works.

The evening begins with “Prelude a l’apres-midi d’un faune”, followed by Fantasy for Piano and Orchestra (in which the soloist will be Cedric Tiberghien), Jeux and Nocturnes.

Nocturnes consists of three movements: (1) Nuages, (2) Fetes, (3) Sirenes.  The voices of the ladies of the London Symphony Chorus are heard in the final movement.  In his introductory note to the piece, Debussy wrote: “amongst the waves silvered by the moonlight, is heard the mysterious song of the Sirens as they laugh and pass on”.
