Info for Ravel & Debussy
Although Claude Debussy, born near Paris in 1862 and the thirteen years younger Basque Maurice Ravel had very different personalities, they were united through their music in the extension and even intermittent suspension of the borders of traditional tonality and the deviation of their rhythmic structures from their customary course – Volodymyr Lavrynenko and argovia philharmonic present the two chief protagonists of French Impressionism.
The Swiss sound body, founded in 1963 as the “Aarguer Symphonie Orchestra” has long since grown into an internationally established professional orchestra. Since its 2013/14 season it has been acting as the argovia philharmonic. The orchestra not only shapes its home musically with a broad repertoire, it also makes its name known across the world by touring abroad.
