Andris Nelsons conducts Debussy, Britten, and Rachmaninov — With Ian Bostridge Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra

About

The Six Épigraphes antiques are six miniatures for piano composed by Debussy in 1914, with parts of the music having been written in 1901 to accompany the Chansons de Bilitis by his friend, poet Pierre Louÿs. In 1977, Dutch composer Rudolf Escher transcribed a version for orchestra, impeccably rendered here by the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra under Andris Nelsons!
