Chopin and Debussy best.png

Debussy studied piano with a student of Chopin at the Paris Conservatory and always held a deep love for Chopin's music. Debussy became quite an expert in Chopin's music, agreeing to be the chief editor for an important new edition of Chopin's 4 Ballades commissioned by his own publisher, the famous Editions Durand. The fact that Debussy writes sets of Etudes and Preludes like Chopin who did as well, is testament to the deep connection Debussy held with Chopin's music.
