Claude Debussy: Prelude No. 12 Feux D'Artifice By Guillaume Coppola

Fireworks!

A heavily experimental musician, Debussy developed a rivalrous friendship with fellow French Impressionist Maurice Ravel. His contributions to music went on to influence great changes in classical music and in 1903, Debussy earned the French Legion of Honour There are no prizes for guessing what this work is supposed to represent. Even if one hadn’t seen the title, the image of fireworks are clearly brought to mind. From the small cascading sparks to the grand explosions, Debussy knew how to paint pictures with the piano.
