ANAM's year-long Debussy100 project includes three new Sonatas by Lyle Chan. Read more about these works on our blog: LifeatANAM
"It is always thrilling and humbling for me to hear my music played by people I haven't met yet – especially when they're at this world-class level! I have made so many new friends because my three Sonatas require about 20 ANAM musicians in total to play them. I leave lots of room for interpretation in my music and I'm really enjoying seeing how the musicians' personalities show up in their renditions.” - Lyle Chan, composer
“What Roy doesn’t know about Debussy is probably not worth knowing.” - Margaret Throsby, Midday ABC Classic FM
"Howat’s Debussy puts all the others into perspective: this, I am convinced, is how Debussy intended his pieces to sound." — Andrew Ford, Limelight Magazine
This performance is dedicated to the late John Baldwin, a much-valued supporter of ANAM’s musicians and training.
