About this event

Joining forces to honour the 150th anniversary of Debussy’s birth we have three leading young soloists: two are current BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists, and Jennifer Pike, BBC Young Musician of the Year in 2002, is a former member too.

The Debussy pieces come from late in his career, when he embarked on a set of six sonatas for various instrumental combinations. He completed just three – of which the Sonata for flute, viola and harp can be heard later in the season (Proms Chamber Music 7). Ravel’s elegant Piano Trio gained a new following after featuring in the heartrending 1992 film Un coeur en hiver.

There will be no interval
