Claude Debussy Quote

What I am trying to do is something different — an effect of reality, but what some fools call Impressionism, a term that is usually misapplied, especially by the critics who don't hesitate to apply it to Turner, the greatest creator of mysterious effects in the whole world of art.


As quoted in The Lives of the Great Composers (1997) by Harold C. Schonberg, p. 464
