Total immersion in Debussy
The oblique reference to La Mer, finished in Eastbourne for rather disreputable reasons, is deliberate. Radio 3 is celebrating the centenary of the composer's death this weekend with wall-to-wall talks about the composer and performances of his music. We were not exactly starved of his music during the rest of the year, but at least we should be able to hear some of his lesser-known pieces tomorrow and Sunday.
