This recital explores the music of Claude Debussy and his French colleagues Jacques de la Presle, Henriette Renié and Pierre Sancan. Debussy would rather have aligned himself with Symbolism or Fauvism than Impressionism in art, seeing his use of harmonic dissonances and rhythmic complexity to have more similarity with those schools. Today, we consider Debussy alongside works by Gauguin in The Courtauld collection, and with another of his contemporaries, Paul Cézanne.
