Modern music wouldn’t be the same without Claude Debussy. His use of non-traditional tonalities, scales, especially the chromatic scale, would not only inspire composers in the 20th and 21st century but also the early jazz artists and eventually popular music.
Claude Debussy’s most famous works include Clair De Lune, the Deux Arabesques, Pour Le Piano and his Preludes. Known largely for his piano works, he also wrote extensively for voice and orchestra.
A contemporary of many other famed composers, Claude Debussy was associated in various ways with figures such as Maurice Ravel, Stephane Mallarme, Igor Stravinsky and Richard Strauss, whose music is also available from Musicroom.
