Boston Chamber Music Society Wraps Up its Celebration of Debussy on Saturday

The final concert features music from Faure, Debussy and Ravel.

The Boston Chamber Music Society wraps up it celebration of the 150th anniversary of Claude Debussy's birth Saturday at the Arsenal Center for the Arts.

The concert features music from three men who paved the way for the musical revolution of the 20th century, according to the BCMS website.

"Fauré shook up the Paris Conservatoire, breaking rules with perfect grace. His first violin sonata came a quarter century before Debussy’s Ibéria, an atmospheric portrait full of worldly influences. Ravel’s Piano Trio, a bright and energetic work, was a rush to the finish—his last before the Great War that changed everything," according to the BCMS.
