Some of Debussy’s music, like the Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune, was so harmonically unusual that it didn’t enthrall critics at the time. One critic scoffed after the premiere: “The faun must have had a terrible afternoon!”

9 December
Back in Paris, Debussy almost immediately signs a contract to write the music for a four-act drama by Gabriele D'Annunzio, Saint Sébastien , subsequently to be published as Le Martyre de saint Sébastien , a mystery in five acts and five mansions, with Ida Rubinstein in the title role.

"Pagodes" is the first of the three musical tableaux that make up  Estampes  (1903). Evocative of the mysterious Orient that attracted so many artists at the turn of the century, this picturesque work features the pentatonic scale, set against a lush, richly European background.

During the latter part of his life Debussy created an alter ego, “Monsieur Croche,” with whom he carried on imaginary conversations on the nature of art and music. “What is the use of your almost incomprehensible art?” Monsieur Croche asks. “Is it not more profitable to see the sun rise than to listen to the Pastoral Symphony of Beethoven?” Elsewhere Monsieur Croche supports the cause of the musical explorer: “I am less interested in what I possess than in what I shall need tomorrow.”
