    Debussy: Aug 18th - 24th

    Claude Debussy’s vast output has given us masterpieces in a variety of categories such as orchestral, piano, ballet and chamber music. This week, to honour his birthdate, we shine the spotlight on the French-born composer's vocal works with settings of texts by Verlaine, Mallarmé and Baudelaire.
