Programme Note

Debussy and Bartók discovered strikingly different solutions to the problem of composing contemporary music that captivated general audiences.

In his Prélude Debussy gently suspended time by loosening the bonds of musical convention, while Bartók's Concerto is a blazing virtuoso orchestral showpiece in which every department has a chance to shine.

6pm at Royal Festival Hall - Music of Today. A live performance of music by contemporary composers.
