Happy Birthday Claude Debussy (1862-1918)

Debussy was among the greatest impressionistic composers of the 19th century (along with Maurice Ravel). Best known for his orchestral works, such as La Mer and Prelude a l'apres-midi d'un faune, and piano works such as the Preludes and Clair de Lune, Debussy's chamber music pieces are not quite so well know. Among those works, I particular like his one and only string quartet, the first movement of which gets an enthusiastic performance from the Dahlkvist Quartet in the video below.
