It seems that I like the Debs.
CR, on composer Claude Debussy
We’ve heard book II of Debussy’s Preludes performed at Carnegie Hall twice now within the past two months (Pierre-Laurent Aimard in November, and Radu Lupu last night), so CR now feels familiar enough to call Debussy “Debs” for short.
- Me: Can you believe that this piece was first played here in 1892? People heard this same piece in this same place. That's pretty cool.
- CR: Yep. And video recording wasn't allowed then, either.
