Overview

French Impressionism is a style of music as well as painting, and Claude Debussy (1862-1918) is the leading Impressionist composer. Although he was initially influenced by the heavy, Germanic music of Wagner, most of Debussy's music is delicate and requires a lightness of touch from performers. The Frenchman's songs are elegant and acutely sensitive to the texts, which makes them perfectly suited for the exquisite talents of Dawn Upshaw. A modest and unpretentious singer, Upshaw is the perfect interpreter of these understated songs, which do not seize you right away but draw you ever so gently into their delicate world.
