Warm, evocative, sensual… arresting, daring, forward-looking.

Warm, evocative, sensual… arresting, daring, forward-looking.The music of Ravel and Debussy is all these things and more. Over one weekend in March, Ensemble 360, Catrin Finch and guests present the complete chamber music of these two radical and inspirational composers as part of our Festival of Chamber Music and Song from France’s Golden Age, presented in collaboration with University of Sheffield Concerts. 

At 18, Debussy fell in love with Marie-Blanche Vasnier, a captivating society lady with the voice of an angel. This green-eyed muse sang her way into his heart, inspiring a period of happiness, creativity, and self-discovery. Award-winning duo Gillian Keith and Simon Lepper perform Debussy’s ravishing songs, interwoven seamlessly into readings of extracts from diaries, letters and essays.

In collaboration with Music in the Round
