French Impressions – Anthony Hewitt & Friends

A celebration of French chamber music on the 80th anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy. No other composer quite epitomises the idea of French music in the way that Debussy’s does, his style a deliberate disassociation from the more rigid 18th-century Germanic structures and rules of harmony. Three transcriptions of his most famous works play a central role: the delicate sounds of the faune, the seductive melodies of Pelléas et Mélisande, and the gorgeous heaving harmonies of La Mer – coincidentally inspired by Debussy’s recollection of the seaside at Eastbourne, here in an ingenious modern version for piano trio by Scottish composer Sally Beamish. The Sancan and D’Indy are lesser-known but hugely enjoyable works of stature, more than mere supporting roles. Let’s not neglect Gabriel Faure, whose centenary of death we mark in 2024 – here we present two of his ever popular shorter works.
