Debussy: Revolutionized says
Debussy: Revolutionized is a birthday showcase of the music and influence of Claude Debussy. Members and friends of the Classical Revolution PDX community will interpret the music and demonstrate the influence of Debussy, not just with music, but with dance, electronics, soundscapes, visuals, film, and more. This unique program features several original compositions connected to or influenced by the French impressionist master.

Program highlights include:

• Six Épigrahes Antique, by Debussy, played by XX Digitus Duo, pianists Momoko Muramatsu and Maria Garcia, and danced by two of the Agnieska Laska Dancers with visual projection.

• Coruscate, written and performed by guitarist Mike Gamble, which creates an impressionistic Debussy-like atmosphere with music and visuals.

• Excerpts from La Mer interpreted by the five-person music collective, Sound of Late. Sound of Late will also perform Canadian composer Emily Doolittle’s ­Social Sounds of Whales at Night.

• Mezzo soprano Valery Saul with pianist, Kira Whiting, performing a number of Debussy’s mélodies (art songs), with accompanying visuals of impressionist paintings.

• The “silent” short film La lune à un mètre (The Astronomer’s Dream) accompanied by a Debussy-influenced score, composed and performed by Portland-based composer and pianist Beth Karp.

• Unique, electronic interpretation of “La flûte de Pan” from Trois Chansons de Bilitis.
