EDITORS’ NOTES

Like its sister style in visual art, Impressionism emerged in the late 19th century and captured classical music at its most evocative and atmospheric. The works here—by composers such as French icons Ravel and Debussy—stretched conventional tonality through the use of modes and unusual scales, often giving the music a dreamy, unresolved feeling: sound as image, as feeling.
