Description:
One century has passed since Claude Debussy left the world of the living. His music keeps haunting us as an inevitable natural phenomenon.
Debussy’s fascination with Russian music is manifest in the Ballade (1890), originally named Ballade Slave. During the Eighties he spent a few summers in Russia on the invitation of Tchaikovski’s patron, madame Nadezhda Von Meck, and hence got in touch with the great Russian composers. The work, originally written for piano solo, evokes a Russian fairy tale-like atmosphere and is narrative in its character.
