On the centenary of the death of Claude Debussy (1862-1918)

The presence in Granada of the Les Siècles orchestra brings with it a high-level essence of France. Conducted by their founder François-Xavier Roth, they offer a journey to the late 19th century universe of sound and to the blend of vanguard music and creativity which emerged in Paris at that time, which was so fundamental in the production of modern styles. Together with pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet they will perform César Franck’s Symphonic Variations. Among other works, their programme includes Debussy’s evocative Nocturnes and they are joined by the choir of the Orquesta Ciudad de Granada for the “Sirens’ Song”.
