Music History with Michael Tracy ~ Claude Debussy
April 21st, 2019 by Vashon Allied Arts
Claude Debussy was among the most influential composers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. His seminal symphonic work ‘Afternoon of the Faun’ (pianist Marc Salman and his son Benjamin Salman perform this work arranged for two pianos) is often seen as the beginning of modern music. Michael Tracy provides an insight to the life, environment and influences of Debussy during the Belle Époque in Paris, and later his impact on jazz artists from Duke Ellington, Miles Davis to Bill Evans.
