[[EmbarrassingFirstName Achille-Claude]] Debussy (22 August 1862 - 25 March 1918) was a French composer. A noted trend starter in the history of music, his ''Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune'' is considered as a turning point of classical music, starting the Impressionist movement and in many ways the antecedent of Modern and Contemporary Classical music. Needless to say, he was, and still is a highly important and inspiring figure in classical music. His influence on music is as much as ClaudeMonet's influence on painting. Modern music historians and critics consider him as the ultimate example, along with his fellow composer MauriceRavel, of the Impressionist movement. (However, Debussy himself hated the label "Impressionism" for his music, believing it to be better suited for the visual arts.)

Outside of his musical success though, his life was kind of turbulent. He had an affair with another's wife although already married, his ex-wife attempted (unsuccessfully) suicide, and produced a huge scandal, so much that he had to flee to England. They had a child, who sadly only outlived her father by only a year, died because of the diphtheria epidemic of 1919. The whole family was buried together.
