Debussy was one of the leading composers of the impressionistic style, conveying mood and emotion through colour, ambiguous tonality and extended harmonies.
Though at seemingly opposite ends of the continuum of twentieth century music, Debussy’s music left a trace through to the post-war compositions of Messiaen and Boulez.
Messiaen talks about Debussy’s use of colour in Pelleas et Melisande, as having a huge influence on his work and like a cosmic echo, Boulez’s Le Marteau sans maitre uses the surrealist poetry of Rene Char to create a distinctive tint of Debussy exoticism.
