Debussy's Critics

Sound, Affect, and the Experience of Modernism

Alexandra Kieffer

  • Traces the intellectual history of a formative movement in European modernism
  • Claims that Debussy was not a "Symbolist" composer, as that label is typically understood
  • Argues for a re-orientation of musicology towards historically-situated listening experiences
