It’s like the impressionist Claude Debussy, who signed the pseudonym Monsieur Croche on his articles in musical magazines entered history. Just as Impressionist painters for the visual arts, Debussy has brought a new breath to French music. Walking off the beaten path, he created new forms, looked for new timbres, colours and harmonies. Debussy was not fond of the impressionist label. In a letter dated 1908, he wrote: "I try to do ‘something else’ - a kind of reality that fools call ‘Impressionism’".
In 2018, Revue Blanche will celebrate the centenary of the death of this musical genius.
