Claude Debussy, music as sensation

Pétronille Danchin, Anastassia Elias
One must know how to try out new ideas, he used to say, otherwise you might as well grow pineapples at home ! And that’s what Claude Debussy did, this great composer who, at the transition of the 19th to the 20th century, turned the art of music writing upside down : for he knew how to make music express a world of sensations.
  • Pétronille Danchin writes and puts on short plays for children. In the “Seeds and Guides” collection, she has written the title on Lewis Carroll and that on George Gershwin.

  • Anastassia Elias published her first title with the publisher Motus and the second with the publisher du Rocher. Her work has revealed her to be talented illustrator.

We speak of it!
  • The « Seeds and Guides » collection, launched at the end of 2009, is dedicated to the men and women who have changed our contemporary world. It is intended for children but adult readers will also appreciate the well-polished and charmingly illustrated texts. This short volume on Claude Debussy is by Pétronille Danchin and Anastassia Elias, who establishes herself as an illustrator of talent.

    Le Monticule
  • An approach as gentle and sensitive as Debussy’s music. This fine text follows like a melodic theme the successive inspirations of the musician.
