nickwbaaDEBUSY: Painter in Sound

Author Stephen Walsh presents a well-researched in-depth biography of the famous French musician Debussy. The book describes how the artist found his musical voice, and emphasizes the legacy he left behind. Not only does it delve into the man’s life, but also his works.    Click here for West Lafayette Public Library Director Nick Schenkel's review
