Programme update (Tuesday 13 May, 10am)
Unfortunately Ensemble 360's Gemma Rosefield (Cello) is unwell and will not be able to perform in today's lunchtime concert. The programme has therefore been changed from Debussy's Cello Sonata in D minor to Debussy's Violin Sonata in G minor, performed by Ensemble 360's Benjamin Nabarro. 

*****

With so many men dying on the battlefields of France, the emotional impact on French composers, directly and indirectly involved in the First World War was profound. André Caplet was gassed during the War which eventually caused his death in 1925, although his Quintet for piano and wind was written in 1898 while he was still a student. Caplet’s friend Debussy was deeply affected by the impact of the war and wrote the Cello Sonata in the months after the Ypres offensive in 1915 – as a necessary escape into what he called 'classical form, in the good sense of the word'. Ravel's La Valse was written in 1919–20. Though he denied that it was influenced by the war, it is impossible to imagine a darker tribute to the Viennese waltz.

* A transaction fee applies to all bookings made at the Box Office (excluding cash) of £1.50 (£1.00 to online bookings).
