Debussy's Vasnier Songbook
Sopranos Gillian Keith and Anna Devin, with Nigel Foster on piano, are performing Debussy's complete Vasnier Songbook at the London Song Festival tonight (14 November) at St Paul's Church, Covent Garden. The recital includes unpublished material from the Paris and Washington (so someone has clearly been busy!). Debussy wrote the songs for Marie-Blanche Vasnier, a married woman with whom he had an affair from 1880 to 1887. Looks like this might be the first time all the songs have been performed together. Sounds like a good reason for being there! Further information from the London Song Festival website.
