Claude Debussy [1910] - Prelude No. 1: "Danseuses de Delphes"


Christopher Jessup - piano

Debussy's Danseuses de Delphes (Dancers of Delphi) was inspired by a sculpture on exhibit at the Louvre. The music evokes images of Ancient Greece, whose culture was then popular in many Parisian intellectual circles. A masterpiece of atmosphere, the work is hardly a great challenge to the pianist's technique, but quite interpretively demanding.

Original fugue for 3 voices.

I've got some longer ones. One is nearly 10 minutes long, orchestrated for harpsichord, bass and recorder. Its actually objectively quite a bit better than this one. Music really is pretty objective (not subjective as people often purport).

Yes these are in the baroque style. I'm quite a bachophile, i know alot of his music on a granular level

In my world, no one can touch Debussy, Chopin, or Beethoven.
That's right Mozart, sit your ass down in the back row, you hype egomaniac. Take your Lamictal and chill.
He ain't bad, but I like better Bach, Rachmaninoff, Vivaldi, Dvořák, and Schubert. I would also seat Tchaikowsky with Mozart, with both of them I find I love some pieces, but scorn others as bubblegum or trash.

Claude Debussy [1890] - Preludes, Book 1 No. 10


Pianist - Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli

The piece is based upon the myth of the island of Ys and a church that, although buried under water, rises and appears on clear mornings. The sounds of chorals, bells and monks chanting can be heard in the delicate composition.
