This week Donald Macleod, in his BBC Radio 3 programme ‘Composer of the Week’, explored the life and work of Debussy (1862-1918), focusing on his passion for the piano from an early age – he was just 10 when he began studying at the Paris Conservatoire – and charting his long journey to becoming a prolific composer.

Noriko Ogawa is highly acclaimed for her complete Debussy series with BIS Records (‘If you like your Debussy to sound like the musical equivalent of a chilled white wine, Noriko Ogawa is the pianist for you.’ Roger Vignoles, BBC Radio 3, CD Review), confirming her as a fine Debussy specialist. These recordings feature prominently in this BBC Radio 3 series with Suite Bergamasque (Episode 1, first broadcast on Monday 8th October) and Preludes Book 2 Nos 8, 7 and 12 (Episode 4, first broadcast on Thursday 11th October) being broadcast this week.

You can listen to the shows again on BBC iplayer or directly from the BBC Radio 3 website.
