Distinguished international pianist Catherine Vickers opens the Centenary celebrating great French Impressionist composer, Claude Debussy (1862-1918). A highly significant figure who was a catalyst for new musical ideas in the late 19th and 20th centuries, Debussy explored piano sonorities and colours as did none before him. Ms. Vickers will perform the composer’s late masterpiece, the extremely demanding set of Twelve Etudes, a work she will have just recorded for release in 2018.  A Saskatchewan-born prodigy, the artist has won accolades on world stages, and is now based in Frankfurt. Germany. She is a champion of modern music, and teaches and publishes on contemporary piano technique.  

Season pass and tickets available: McNally Robinson, Yamaha Piano, Saskatoon Academy of Music, Gustin Committee, or at the door. Children 12 and Under, free when accompanied by an adult.
