FROM ALBUM NOTES by Edmondo Filippini:

In a famous interview with Peter Bogdanovich, Orson Welles told of one of his most successful roles of his theatrical career, he played a highly feared and respected Chinese magician, without ever appearing until the last act. In the meantime everyone talked about him, everyone mentioned him and finally when he appeared all the audience shuddered because he became the protagonist without being so. What happens in “Debussy Circle” is no different. In the year of the Debussian celebrations all over the world (especially in France) will be performed plenty of pieces and Omnia everywhere.
