Event Details

'Mostly Debussy' is a series of piano lecture-recitals that leads up to year 2018 to mark the 100th anniversary of Claude Debussy's death. In this third event, Lucas Wong, assistant professor of piano in Soochow University School of Music, will be exploring a humorous side of Debussy to the full. While tracing the brand of humour in the composer's late period, Lucas will also uncover hidden treasures from a lesser-known composer in the name of Emmanuel Chabrier. In this lecture-recital, three of Debussy's Twelve Studies will be juxtaposed with the works by Chabrier, with a guest appearance by pianist Timothy Kwok. Join us and discover the playfulness in French music!
