DEBUSSY (arr. Caplet) Pagodes from Estampes

In this entertaining concert, QSO features music by the great composers, each one marked by a unique attempt to try something different. For instance, Beethoven wrote the second movement of his Eighth Symphony to sound like an invention of his day – the metronome! Haydn also was inspired by the mechanical world – his famous Symphony No. 101 has a delightful ticking melody in the second movement that earned it the nickname 'The Clock'. Debussy sought to mimic the sound of Indonesian Gamelan music in his Pagodes from Estampes.
