Prof. Barbara Kelly (RNCM) and Dr, David J. Code (University of Glasgow)
are pleased to invite submission to two related events designed to mark the
centenary of the death of Claude Debussy on March 25, 1918. ‘Debussy
Perspectives’ will bring together world experts and emerging scholars to
reflect critically on the current state of Debussy research of all kinds.
‘Debussy’s Late work and the Musical Worlds of Wartime Paris’ will focus
mainly on the music Debussy (and others) created during the First World
War, along with its reception from the postwar years until now. Performance
workshops and concerts will be central to both events.

We are delighted to announce as our keynote speakers: Dr. Denis Herlin
(Manchester) and Dr. Marianne Wheeldon (Glasgow).

*Call for Creative Works ‘in memoriam Claude Debussy’*

Our final chamber concert will include original works by RNCM and GU
composers. But we also invite *any interested composers* to submit short
works (ca. 5 mins) using the instrumentation Debussy envisioned for his
fourth and fifth sonatas (oboe, horn and harpsichord; clarinet, bassoon,
trumpet, and piano). Some may be selected for inclusion in our workshops
and/or concert. (Contact Drew.hammond -at- glasgow.ac.uk for further

Please send expressions of interest by 1 September 2017; we will require
fair copy score and parts by 31 January 2018.
