Debussy: La MerGoogle "Debussy" and "beloved" and you will not be short of search results. And while Claude Debussy (1862–1918) is a composer who has so entered the popular imagination that for many he exists outside of history, NEC's musicians did in fact celebrate the 150th anniversary of his birth throughout 2012.

Since Debussy cropped up on NEC concerts even more than usual that year, we're showing links to opportunities to hear his sublime music in concerts preserved at NEC's InstantEncore channel.
