A Nocturne Not by Chopin

Inside Music: A Nocturne Not by Chopin

Claude Debussy wrote three nocturnes for symphony orchestra, bearing absolutely no resemblance to the eighteen by Chopin for solo piano. In this episode George Marriner Maull takes a look inside Festivals, the second of Debussy’s work: Three Nocturnes. Debussy’s liberated attitude toward tonality and distinct orchestrations will be explored.
