Debussy’s 150th Birthday

The anniversary of Claude Debussy’s 150th birthday seems to have been somewhat overlooked by such notable institutions as Carnegie Hall, the New York Philharmonic and Lincoln Center. Considered by some as music’s great impressionist, The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians defines him as a symbolist. But whatever movement one places him in, Debussy was known as one of the most radical composers in music history. See the full article from today’s New York Times. Check the EPL catalog for some of his works, including La Mer, Clair de lune, and Pelleas et Melisande.
