  1. Identifying Classical Music
    It's in the background right from the start on this YouTube video. They didn't mention the name specifically in the description, just "Debussy's Evocation of the Sea". But I checked the start of each movement of La Mer (translates to "The Sea") by Debussy and I don't think it's from that. Also...

    As an intro here's a fine recording of this quartet by the talented Esme Quartet. With over 120 recordings this was never going to be an easy task and I've had to be quick, decisive and very selective. Skip-listening and prior knowledge of recordings helped a lot in the early stages and there...

    I was wondering if anyone here was partial to Debussy’s Preludes and which ones you prefer. I like des pas sur la neige (Book 1) myself.
  4. Classical Music Discussion
    As promised (to Becca) here's 4 recordings of Debussy's La Mer for you to enjoy. These are not my 4 favourite recordings of La Mer and a few are more obscure. All feature professional conductors and orchestras (I'm not trying to trick anyone here so join in)! However, if you know the identity...

    Hi all, I'm looking for the orchestral arrangement of Clair de Lune (Debussy) by Lucien Cailliet - I've looked everywhere on the internet but to no avail.

  10. Music Theory
    I'm fascinated by how harmony was used by the composers who first stretched tonality to its limits without abandoning it, such as composers ranging from Mahler and Strauss to Debussy and Ravel. I also feel that I don't have a solid grasp on the theory behind their music. Do you know of any...

    Anyone else thinking of getting this? Since i am early on in building my library, i have very little Debussy, and this seems like a great collection. http://www.deutschegrammophon.com/us/album/debussy-100.html
  12. Classical Music Discussion
    Hi all, Sorry about the extremely vague title! I really enjoyed reading Images and ideas in modern French piano music : the extra-musical subtext in piano works by Ravel, Debussy, and Messiaen by Siglind Bruhn. This book includes 10-page descriptions of what's going on harmonically...
  13. Off Topic Pub
    Hi everyone. I suffer from depression and anxiety. I've been suffering all this bad stuff since I was 15 years old (I am 23 years old right now) and music has always been my refuge. I discovered Claude Debussy, Sergei Rachmaninoff when I was 16 and it changed my life forever. Music in general...
  14. Identifying Classical Music
    I have been listening to this video on YouTube for quite a while, I really enjoy how the pieces are played, especially the Arabesques at the beginning. I'd like to buy a CD or something like that, but nowhere in the description or comment section can I find any name for the performer, and I was...
  15. Classical Music Discussion
    First off, I apologize for my English. Second, I am a complete amateur listener (but I've been listening to classical music for almost 10 years now) so I guess many members here are professional performers and composers, academics or have some knowledge with music theory. So please don't take it...
  16. Religious Music
    Satie had a relationship with a type of Christianity, an intense interest that we probably don't have a fair understanding of today because of revisionism or just perhaps the desire not to know by a more liberal academia. I'm not saying the exact facts aren't somewhere to be found, but they...
  17. Classical Music Discussion
    My newest love. After a two-week diet of Bartok quartets, the CD and MR quartets sound lush, sunlit, dreamy, relaxed... Favourite recordings? I'm learning them with the Kodalys on Naxos, but would welcome other recommendations. Thanks!
  18. Classical Music Discussion
    Most of them said that he was an impressionist. What i heard from my professor is, Debussy did not 'labelled' himself as an impressionist or whatever but some of Desbussy 's music was influenced by the symbolism. It sounds right to me because one of his work le sons et les parfums is related to...

    Orchestration of Debussy's "Voiles" Prelude for piano (2nd Prelude from Book I) Here's an orchestration I did last week of Debussy's "Voiles" Prelude from Book I: Sheet music can be found here...
