Eddie Parker’s Debussy Mirrored Ensemble

Former Loose Tubes flautist and composer Eddie Parker and his ensemble take inspiration from Debussy. Part of the EFG London Jazz Festival.

As part of the EFG London Jazz Festival, former Loose Tubes flautist and composer Eddie Parker presents a new show that takes Debussy’s music as a starting point and leads us on a fascinating musical journey. Parker has a life-long passion for Debussy’s music, and to celebrate the composer in his centenary year, he has handpicked a 12-piece ensemble, comprising musicians from classical, jazz and improvisation disciplines. Together, they will give a dozen of Debussy's works a contemporary twist.
