Illustrated by Charlotte Voake
A beautifully illustrated biography about Debussy’s childhood and how he came to become a great composer. On the accompanying CD, the narration of the story is interwoven with recordings of his greatest works.
As a boy, Debussy wanted to be a sailor. At music college in Paris he used to shock his teachers with the sounds he made on the piano. Children who want to know how to make a glass sing or hear the sound of the sea in a teacup will learn much from Debussy.
