Marcel Dietschy's "La Passion de Claude Debussy" was published in French in 1962. It was hailed as an invaluable source of reference for many hitherto unpublished facts about Debussy. The author unearthed documents about every personality connected with the composer, making it an accurate account of many episodes in Debussy's life. The book also contains much information about Bebussy's family and early life. Dietschy's treatment of Debussy's works is essentially biographical rather than musicological, and his approach to the subject yields many insights into Debussy's complex personality. This translation of Dietschy's biography makes the information available for the first time in English. The two translators have made a number of corrections, including Dietschy's own list of errata, not incorporated into the French edition. They have also updated the bibliography and list of works, and have been able to include information about some recently discovered manuscripts.show more
