Mid Week Quote: Claude Debussy

This weeks quote is attributed to one of my favourite composers Claude Debussy.

Debussy was a child prodigy, and his talent as a pianist meant that he won a place at the Paris Conservatoire at only ten years old. Early on he started to develop his own style and characteristic composing style. He studied for eleven years at the Conservatoire but for the rest of his life he pioneered groundbreaking methods of composition and was never afraid to break a few rules.

“Works of art make rules; rules do not make works of art.”


attributed: Claude Debussy

Circa. 1910


Happy Wednesday.
