The French Connection

Chopin in 2010, Liszt in 2011 – now that we’re in 2012, it is Debussy’s turn for the spotlight as we celebrate 150 years since his birth in 1862. It’s quite a logical succession -Debussy studied with a pupil of Chopin, and met Liszt in Rome; they are all connected. So expect a Gallic twist in my Notes from a Pianist this year.

To set the scene, here is Debussy’s L’après-midi d’une Faune for orchestra – Stokowski conducts the LSO. Bonne année!
