In this video: Melbourne Guitar Quartet performs Remembering Debussy in the Primrose Potter Salon on 7 August 2018.

A century after his passing, Melbourne Guitar Quartet continues to celebrate the genius of Debussy despite having never composed a single note for the guitar. The depth of colour and imagination expressed within his works transcends the boundaries of instrumentation. A collection of interpretations and inspirations, MGQ’s Remembering Debussy explores a world of reverie and colour and showcases a number of premiere performances.
