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

The prestigeous French orchestra Les Siècles will open this season of the Granada Festival with a programme devoted entirely to Debussy on the centenary of his death. This inaugural concert heralds a Festival with a distinctly French flavor over which Debussy’s shadow will hover as will the attraction of his work and its influence on the work of other composers. Pablo Heras-Casado, the Festival’s current director will conduct Les Siècles to review the timeless legacy of the great French composer.
