Indiscipliné, depuis le Conservatoire, et méprisant les succès faciles, Claude Debussy (1862-1918) dut toute sa vie faire face à de sévères reviews. Avec le Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune, Pelléas et Mélisande, los angeles Mer ou encore ses Préludes pour piano, sachant se libérer des traditions romantiques et wagnériennes, il a révolutionné los angeles musique française. Admirateur des impressionnistes, de Verlaine et de Mallarmé, il s’est nourri d'art et de littérature mais aussi des musiques orientale et espagnole. Il a recherché des harmonies et des rythmes nouveaux dans lesquels les notes expriment sensations et pictures. En proie durant toute son life à des difficultés matérielles et à des accès de spleen, il reste un compositeur à half, perfectionniste et intransigeant. Il mourut au son des canons allemands bombardant Paris.
