Enescu International Festival 2019: Debussy and Clara Schumann

Sarah Walker presents more performances from the 2019 George Enescu International Festival.

Today, the second book of piano Preludes by Debussy, written in 1912, just a few years after the first book, these atmospheric pieces create sound worlds all their own in a typically Debussian style. And the Clara Schumann Romances are similarly definitive of her style, which shares so much with her husband Robert's.
