Debussy's Paris

Piano Portraits of the Belle époque

Book - 2017
Rate this:
Claude Debussy's exquisite piano works have captivated generations with their dreamlike atmosphere and mysterious soundscapes. Written in Paris at the height of the Belle époque, Debussy's works reflect not only the most appealing and innocent aspects of Paris but also the more disquieting attitudes of the time such as racism, colonial domination, and nationalistic hostility. Pianist Catherine Kautsky reveals little-known elements of Parisian culture and weaves the music, the man, the city, and the era into an indissoluble portrait that will delight anyone who has ever been entranced by Debussy's music or the city that inspired it. --
