Claude Debussy (1862-1918) reinvented the language of music for the 20th century. European wealth and technological advances had brought art from all over the world to Paris, a city with a fanatical desire to be entertained. With his phenomenal ear and prodigious technique, Debussy explored harmonies and musical forms that delighted the Parisians. About his iconoclastic music, Debussy told a friend, “There is no theory. You have only to listen. Pleasure is the law!”

As July approaches, we’ll continue following the official recommendations of Mendocino County Health Officer Dr. Noemi Doohan. In the event of cancellation, ticket buyers will be contacted and offered a range of options, including an immediate refund of the full value of their purchased ticket(s).

“Waterfall’s productions always present exciting, absorbing playing of great music, but are also rare, distinctive examples of what can be called music education, though they’re more conversational, truly a sharing of perspective, interest, anecdote. There’s a sense of immediacy to her delivery, weaving in and out of the playing, an intimately conceived present awareness of this heritage. It’s something unique that needs to be experienced.” Ken Bullock, Berkeley Daily Planet
