“Music should be flexible and adaptable to fantasies and dreams.”
– Claude Debussy

Paris, 1889. Millions of visitors flock to Paris to witness the great wonders of an ever-expanding and brave new world. Among them, a young Claude Debussy strolls through the Exposition Universelle and is transfixed by the music of the Javanese gamelan.

Just over 1000 kms away, in Vienna, there is great turmoil. The Crown Prince Rudolf has committed suicide. The fate of the Austro-Hungarian Empire hangs in the balance. Join us as we visit this auspicious moment in history, through the lens of its most exciting compositions.
