Debussy, 12 studies of modernity
Through the modernism and the uniqueness of his language, Debussy has left a deep impression on 20th and 21st century composers. But a little over a century after its composition, his work has gradually become familiar to us, making it very difficult to imagine the aesthetic shock felt by the public when it first heard the Preludes or Etudes.
“In my projects ‘Debussy, poet of modernity’ in 2012 and ‘Debussy, 12 studies of modernity’ in 2018, I sought to restore a part of the feeling of immanence and strangeness that must have gripped the listeners during the creation of these highly unexpected works...” Hugues Leclère
