Claude Debussy - 24 Préludes pour piano|
Jean Cocteau (1926): "Le rappel à l'ordre"
Debussy existed long before Debussy. There was architecture reflected in water. There were ocean waves rushing and abating, branches bent in in slumber, plums tumbling to the ground to bleed golden juice... All of nature murmured but indistinctly, without a human tongue to express it's flow. A myriad of wonders have now found their interpreter.
