Magic, Mystery, and Anarchy: Music of Claude Debussy, 100 Years After his Death

ID : 7155   
« back to classes page
Claude Debussy was one of the most subversive of all composers, yet his sensuously-colored, finely-detailed music has enchanted and inspired listeners and composers alike around the world in the 100 years since his death. He transformed the ambiguity, audacity, and complexity of the late nineteenth century French impressionist painters and symbolist poets into a magical, mysterious sound world that propelled music into the modern era. Thoroughly reimagining the three fundamental building blocks of music — melody, harmony, and rhythm — he wrote some of the most forward-sounding compositions of all time. This fascinating journey leads us from Debussy’s youthful compositions, inspired by Chopin, Massenet, and other Romantic masters, through his post-Wagnerian evolution, to his exquisite, epigrammatic, and often enigmatic final works.
