(Achille) Claude Debussy (22 August 1862 - 25 March 1918) was a French composer. He is sometimes seen as the first Impressionist composer, although he vigorously rejected the term. He was among the most influential composers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Born to a family of modest means and little cultural involvement, Debussy showed enough musical talent to be admitted at the age of ten to France's leading music college, the Conservatoire de Paris. He originally studied the piano, but found his vocation in innovative composition, despite the disapproval of the Conservatoire's conservative professors. He took many years to develop his mature style, and was nearly 40 when he achieved international fame in 1902 with the only opera he completed, Pelléas et Mélisande.
Debussy's orchestral works include Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune (1894), Nocturnes (1897-1899) and Images (1905-1912). His music was to a considerable extent a reaction against Wagner and the German musical tradition. He regarded the classical symphony as obsolete and sought an alternative in his "symphonic sketches", La mer (1903-1905). His piano works include two books of Préludes and two of Études. Throughout his career he wrote mélodies based on a wide variety of poetry, including his own. He was greatly influenced by the Symbolist poetic movement of the later 19th century. A small number of works, including the early La Damoiselle élue and the late Le Martyre de saint Sébastien have important parts for chorus. In his final years, he focused on chamber music, completing three of six planned sonatas for different combinations of instruments.
With early influences including Russian and far-eastern music, Debussy developed his own style of harmony and orchestral colouring, derided - and unsuccessfully resisted - by much of the musical establishment of the day. His works have strongly influenced a wide range of composers including Béla Bartók, Olivier Messiaen, George Benjamin, and the jazz pianist and composer Bill Evans. Debussy died from cancer at his home in Paris at the age of 55 after a composing career of a little more than 30 years.
The application of the term "Impressionist" to Debussy and the music he influenced has been much debated, both during his lifetime and since. The analyst Richard Langham Smith writes that Impressionism was originally a term coined to describe a style of late 19th-century French painting, typically scenes suffused with reflected light in which the emphasis is on the overall impression rather than outline or clarity of detail, as in works by Monet, Pissarro, Renoir and others. Langham Smith writes that the term became transferred to the compositions of Debussy and others which were "concerned with the representation of landscape or natural phenomena, particularly the water and light imagery dear to Impressionists, through subtle textures suffused with instrumental colour".
Among painters, Debussy particularly admired Turner, but also drew inspiration from Whistler. With the latter in mind the composer wrote to the violinist Eugène Ysaÿe in 1894 describing the orchestral Nocturnes as "an experiment in the different combinations that can be obtained from one colour - what a study in grey would be in painting."

At 69 years old, I can't tell you the number of times Debussy has calmed me, helped me write, helped me to study, helped me lose myself while painting or creating art. There is beauty in this world; you just have to look for it and you will find it. For those who are hurting, or wounded, or grieving, Debussy is a fine place to start. I also find Bach and Corelli inspiring; less serene, but definitely inspiring and beautiful. I love the Russians too whether dramatic or spritely or lovely -- Tchaikovsky, Moussorgsky, Scriabin, Rimsky Korsakov....ah yes! One great thing about the old music stores was that you could browse in stacks and find music similar to each other and this would introduce you to other composers. Even just looking at all the boxed sets of Bach, and the many operas, one could learn names of operas and composers just by reading them and soaking them in. It's not as easy nowadays. Keep looking for beauty and keep MAKING beautiful things -- music, art, poetry, books.....

Looking at this images , makes you find the way to seeing how simple is having a little peace when there is caos in the world. Happiness is just living and feeling this music entering our souls, where they will walk always with us. Live is beautiful in so many ways and having faith and hope through God, is the key to be peaceful and full of contentment. So let’s be happy and joyful now.En kyung every breath of live is a gift o God. Enjoy immortality trough the genius of music. No body can’t steal this moments from your soul. MVF

I enjoy my time here. I’m dozing, so I have mental images of the paintings. This way I get to see Degas’ ballerinas stretch on the barre before they dance, Monet’s lilies floating on gentle movements of the water, Van Gogh’s stars twinkle - just as he would’ve seen them with his artist’s eye. And I, I get to hear Debussy play for them all. How rich is that!

I am from Germany.So,what I want to tell ? I only want to tell,that Claude Debussy is an old french music composer. But he is not alive yet and so musicians from today play his music. Thanks for listening and relax. Excuse my bad english,i am used to speek german and german is a very strange language for me also. Also entspannt euch und geniesst die Musik.Ich bin auch ein Deutscher,der noch in Deutschland leben muss.Wäre ich nur ausgewandert....

don't be sorry for not auswandern - not all is rosy - I miss Germany because I left much of my soul there - but I have lived here for50 some years. - I miss the many events I attendet as a young person - here is so expansive now and lacks much inerest on a large scale. Take care and enjoy your life

I love the music and especially the art work you have included. However, may I make a suggestion? We have a house full of children to educate. I would appreciate a ticker tape or note of some kind at the bottom on the picture, with the name, date, and artist of the musical composition, and up in the corner, the name of the painting, with the artist and approximate date. That way, this can be a learning experience as well as a sensual delight. Thank you so much!

When the world falls apart, when the structures of a civilization falter, it is good to return to that which in history does not flex, but on the contrary recovers courage, gathers the separated, pacifies without bruising. It’s worth recalling that the genius of creation is also moving in an history devoted to the destruction..
