Impressionism was a 19th century art movement that lent its name to a contemporary school of primarily French music. The style emphasized tone color, atmosphere, and fluidity and was particularly adept at conveying moods and emotions. Masterpieces such as Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun, La Mer, Daphnis et Chloe, and others by Respighi, Delius, and Dukas are examined as Michael Vaughn explores this fascinating correlation between music and art.
