Main: Happy Birthday Claude Debussy!

Claude Debussy

August 22, 2012 marks the 150th Anniver­sary of the birth of one of the most influ­en­tial com­posers of all time: Claude Debussy.

Today’s pro­gram on Radio Riel’s Main stream is a trib­ute to Debussy in which we fea­ture not only his works, but the music of the 20th Cen­tu­ry com­posers whom he influ­enced.

The inspi­ra­tion from Debussy’s ground­break­ing work affect­ed not only Mod­ern Clas­si­cal music com­posers, but also Jazz com­posers. Because of this you will hear a mélange of music today, from Erik Satie to Thelo­nius Monk. From Igor Stravinky to George Gersh­win. From Pierre Boulez to Her­bie Han­cock. Then add in some Art of Noise. We hope you enjoy this wide vari­ety of music that all stems from the genius of Claude Debussy.


Today’s pro­gram is pre­sent­ed by Gabrielle Riel. To lis­ten, click here to start your play­er. If you are in the Unit­ed States, please use the fol­low­ing link: http://loudcity.com/stations/radio-riel/tune_in .
