Performers Composers

Notes & Reviews:

The two composers were completely different in nature. Brahms'neoclassicism had never even remotely touched Debussy, a young man on the look-out for new, mysterious sounds. At the 1889 World Exhibition in Paris, Debussy discovered the sounds of Javanese and Gamelan music which would become so characteristic of his compositions, a music which did not comply with traditional European rules, but was filled with the exotic magic we encounter in Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune and Syrinx. But in one sense, there was a kind of mutual exchange: Debussy and Brahms met one another. Not personally in Vienna, that is true, but in a musical sense: they met at a point where the Late Romantic style opens the door towards a new direction, for the tone colours of Impressionism.
