Robert Orledge is a leading scholar of late 19th and early 20th-century French music, and a Professor Emeritus of the University of Liverpool. He has published numerous books and articles on Fauré, Debussy, Koechlin and Satie. Since taking early retirement in 2004, he has become a ‘creative musicologist’, concentrating on completing and orchestrating Debussy’s unfinished works. His completion of The Fall of the House of Usher was premiered at the Bregenz Opera Festival in 2006, alongside the Chinese ballet No-ja-li in Los Angeles. His Nocturne pour violon et orchestre was broadcast from the Amsterdam Concertgebouw in 2011 with Isabelle Faust as soloist and Heinz Holliger conducting, and the opera Le Diable dans le beffroi was first performed in Montreal in 2012.
