Debussy100 Project

Debussy100 is a year-long project to mark the 100th anniversary of the death of Claude Debussy. Led by a collection of national and international pianists, hear the complete piano and chamber music of Claude Debussy, including 100 titled movements for the keyboard.

As part of this project ANAM has commissioned three new works by composer Lyle Chan to realise a project that Debussy was working on before his untimely death. Debussy was completing six sonatas for various instruments, however only finished the Violin Sonata, Cello Sonata and Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp. Lyle Chan will be composing his own version of the last three sonatas adopting Debussy's intended instrumentation. 

Read more about the Debussy100 project and insights into Debussy's music from an article written by ANAM's Head of Piano, Timothy Young in our newspaper, Music Makers
