A portrait of Claude Debussy
Prentice Hall PTR, Oct 25, 1990 - Biography & Autobiography - 254 pages
When this book was first published in French in 1962, it was hailed as an invaluable and reliable source of reference for many previously unpublished facts about the great composer. With painstaking attention to detail, Dietschy unearthed documents about every personality connected with Debussy, offering particularly novel information about Debussy's family and early life. Biographical rather than musicological, his deeply sensitive and sympathetic approach to Debussy's life and works yields many fresh insights into Debussy's complex personality. This first English translation incorporates Dietschy's later corrections as well as an updated bibliography and list of works.
