During the course of 2018 we shall be marking the 350th birthday of Francois Couperin and the centenary of Debussy’s death.   It will also be 100 years since the Baltic States (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania) achieved their independence, and we will celebrate this with a series of concerts featuring performers and composers from each of those countries.
