Syrinx Journey Day 82: Happy Birthday Monet!

I am pleased to celebrate Claude Monet’s birthday on November 14 with the music of Debussy. When he was first called an impressionist composer, the term was still tainted by the pejorative use of the term for Monet and his fellow Impressionist artists. Later on, Debussy accepted the terminology as his music was increasingly identified as Impressionist, along with that of Ravel, Satie, and others.

I have loved Monet’s paintings ever since I was a little girl, and used to learn French music with prints of Monet’s artworks alongside the FaurĂ©, Chaminade, Debussy, or Ravel on my stand.
