"It may be in fact I have taken on a task that is too much for me; there is no precedent, so I'm obliged to invent new forms." — Claude Debussy

Among his most popular, most performed, most recorded works is La Mer, a complex masterpiece comprising three symphonic sketches: "De l'aube à midi sur la mer" (From dawn to noon on the sea); "Jeux de vagues" (Play of waves); and "Dialogue du vent et de la mer" (Dialogue of the wind and sea).
