The composer Claude Debussy was born in St. Germain-en-Laye, a few miles outside
Paris, in 1862. While a pupil at the Conservatoire, he composed music that did
not conform to the theory of the times. He contradicted his teachers by claiming
that pleasure was the only valid rule of music, and that music could not be learned.
Debussy was to become one of the greatest French composers, creating works which
threw open entirely new musical horizons.
