Tribute to Debussy

Twenty six young, gifted Greek soloists will perform a tribute to the major French composer Claude Debussy, on the occasion of his 100-year death anniversary. The four-day tribute will be held at the recently renovated concert hall “Aris Garoufalis” at Athens Conservatoire. Solo pieces and chamber music, composed either by Debussy himself or by others as homage to the great master will be performed.

A collaboration of Athens Festival and the Athens Conservatoire.
