Claude Debussy was a Most Impressive Impressionist

Debussy was born in St. Germain-en-Laye in 1862 and died in Paris in 1918. He was a French composer and a critic. His early piano lessons came from the mother-in-law of Verlaine (Mme Mauté de Fleurville). He eventually entered into the Paris Conservatory in the year 1873.

1884 was a good year for the young composer, as he won the Prix de Rome with his cantata L’Enfant prodigue. It was around this time that he also met Verdi and Liszt.

Debussy was not afraid to experiment. Modes, whole tone scales, chord spacing and skillful orchestration were all part of the makeup of this extremely talented composer. Like Chopin, he highly influenced piano technique.

An Amazing Debussy Fact

Many composers were in complete admiration of Debussy’s music and influence. Included among these composers were Messiaen, Bartók and Stravinsky.
