To celebrate the anniversary of the birth of the master of opera, the Debussy string Quartet presents a program straight out of the romantic 19th century in Italy with its love of the art of Opera. At this time, it was quite common to perform opera music in smaller ensembles, such as the string quartet, so that it could be heard in lounges and salons, and give the audience an intimate version of Puccini, Rossini, Bellini and Verdi’s masterpieces.
