Being the last lecture-recital in the series, the ‘Mostly Debussy V’ will commemorate the 100th anniversary of Claude Debussy’s death. Inspired by two Debussyan motives – traditional gamelan music and the composer’s monumental late work (Cello Sonata) – a new piano cycle is to be written by three living composers for this special occasion. Tombeau de Debussy (2018) will receive its performance premiere by pianist and dedicatee Lucas Wong. It contains three movements, and it shadows the tempi marking scheme of Debussy’s Cello Sonata.
