About the event

Stephen Walsh (music critic and musicologist), accompanied by Maria Levandovskaya (piano) and Sophie Pullen (soprano)

In the centenary of Debussy’s death, Stephen Walsh’s compelling new biography “Debussy: A Painter in Sound,” During this lecture, Stephen will explore these colours in Debussy’s vocal music in the seductive Pelleas et Melisande and his intoxicating French Art Song – mélodie - highlighting the complex vocal demands that singing en français requires.

From 1963, he worked as a music journalist in London, writing for The Times, Daily Telegraph, and Financial Times, then from 1966 as deputy music critic of The Observer.. Professor Walsh joined Cardiff University as a Senior Lecturer in Music in 1976, and now holds a personal chair in the School.

Opera Prelude is a small charity about supporting young professional opera singers who give lecture recitals in London. These friendly and inclusive events will introduce you to the international opera singers of tomorrow by way of recitals, concerts and masterclasses.
