Composer Claude Debussy was born on August 22, 1862

155 years since the birth of an eminent representative of musical impressionism, the outstanding French composer Claude Debussy is marked on August 22.
We have prepared a record of a fragment of his famous creations "Afternoon of a Faun" (fr.: L'Après-midi d'un faune) to commemorate this date. The prelude, that was written in 1891-1894, largely determined the new century stylistics and became a visiting card of musical neoclassicism.
