Claude Debussy was born in an era intoxicated with colour and emotion – when poetry, paintings and a singular imagination came together to create new worlds of sonic beauty. Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla launches our centenary celebration with a concert devoted to Debussy, his followers and his influences at their most deliriously romantic, beginning with the piece that changed everything: the exquisite Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune.

This concert is part of the CBSO's Debussy Festival. Why not consider saving money with a multi-concert festival pass? Learn more…
