Debussy’s Early Chamber Music 2.30–4.00pm


Museum Piano Gallery Free, no tickets required


To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the birth of Claude Debussy, Roy Howat, Neil Heyde and Peter Sheppard Skærved explore the young composer’s first essays in the field of chamber music: the Piano Trio of 1880, which lay unpublished for over a century, and two cello pieces of 1882. This workshop will illustrate the complexities and challenges of the forthcoming new edition of these pieces (which Roy Howat is preparing for the Œuvres complètes de Claude Debussy), demonstrating how editorial rethinking can sharpen our perception of these still little-known works, and of Debussy’s skills as a young composer.


Saturday 9th June Friday 25th May


Around the Piano 6.00–7.30pm

This event builds on Charles Dickens’s social networks and novels to explore pianos and performance in the Victorian household. Briony Williams looks at the salon of Kate Loder as an example of music-making and innovation within the domestic setting. Christopher Nobbs further contextualises by exploring the types of pianos used at these musical gatherings. This event complements the Dickens and Music exhibition at the Academy’s museum.
