Claude-Achille Debussy è stato un pianista e compositore francese. È considerato e celebrato in patria e nel mondo come uno dei più importanti compositori francesi, nonché uno dei massimi protagonisti del simbolismo musicale. Debussy, come il Mila ci conferma, viene anche identificato nell' "impressionismo musicale", anche se lo stesso compositore ne nega l'appartenenza nonostante le chiare influenze simboliste di Verlaine e Mallarmé.

Rudolph Réti ha dichiarato che l'impresa di Debussy fu la sintesi della "tonalità melodica" a base monofonica con le armonie, sebbene diverse da quelle della "tonalità armonica".

„Works of art make rules but rules do not make works of art.“

— Claude Debussy
As quoted in Companion to Contemporary Musical Thought (1992) by John Paynter, p. 590 Unsourced variant: Works of art make rules; rules do not make works of art.

„It is necessary to abandon yourself completely, and let the music do as it will with you.“

— Claude Debussy
Context: It is necessary to abandon yourself completely, and let the music do as it will with you. All people come to music to seek oblivion. As quoted in The Cambridge Companion to Debussy (2003) by Simon Trezise, p. 120

„Art is the most beautiful deception of all!“

— Claude Debussy
Context: Art is the most beautiful deception of all! And although people try to incorporate the everyday events of life in it, we must hope that it will remain a deception lest it become a utilitarian thing, sad as a factory. … Let us not disillusion anyone by bringing too much reality into the dream. Unsourced variant: Art is the most beautiful of all lies.

„Music would take over at the point at which words become powerless, with the one and only object of expressing that which nothing but music could express.“

— Claude Debussy
Context: Music would take over at the point at which words become powerless, with the one and only object of expressing that which nothing but music could express. For this, I need a text by a poet who, resorting to discreet suggestion rather than full statement, will enable me to graft my dream upon his dream — who will give me plain human beings in a setting belonging to no particular period or country. … Then I do not wish my music to drown the words, nor to delay the course of the action. I want no purely musical developments which are not called for inevitably by the text. In opera there is always too much singing. Music should be as swift and mobile as the words themselves. As quoted in Debussy (1989) by Paul Holmes, p. 36

„Music should humbly seek to please; within these limits great beauty may perhaps be found.“

— Claude Debussy
Context: Music should humbly seek to please; within these limits great beauty may perhaps be found. Extreme complication is contrary to art. Beauty must appeal to the senses, must provide us with immediate enjoyment, must impress us or insinuate itself into us without any effort on our part. Quoted in French Music : From the Death of Berlioz to the Death of Fauré (1951) by Martin Cooper, p. 136, and in Debussy and Wagner (1979) by Robin Holloway, p. 207

„Collect impressions. Don’t be in a hurry to write them down.“

— Claude Debussy
Context: Collect impressions. Don’t be in a hurry to write them down. Because that’s something music can do better than painting: it can centralise variations of colour and light within a single picture — a truth generally ignored, obvious as it is. Debussy in a letter to his pupil Raoul Bardac (1906)
