French composer Claude Debussy was born in St. Germain-en-Laye, just east of his Primary Pluto, which runs in a vertical, Midheaven position along the border of France and Germany. His Primary Pluto forms a narrowly focused Transcendental Midpoint-Field over Europe with Secondary Sun and Tertiary Mercury, which both rise over western Italy and central Germany.
When Debussy was seventeen years old, he commenced his travels through Europe as the “musical companion” of Mme von Meck, who was a friend of Tchaikovsky (1879). After returning to Paris and continuing his studies in musical education at the Paris Conservatoire (1873-1884), he won the Prix de Rome (1884) for his cantata, L’Enfant Paradise. This permitted him additional travel through Europe and granted him a residence in Italy: a location completely framed by his Transcendental Midpoint-Field. While there, he composed Printemps (an orchestral suite; 1887). Upon his return to Paris, he completed the cantata, La Demoiselle Elue (1887-1888).
Debussy’s early work was influenced by Richard Wagner, whose native Germany is framed within Debussy’s narrowly focused Transcendental Midpoint-Field. His later, more mature work was described as “musical impressionism” because of its lack of fixed tonality to any specific compositional key. Debussy’s creations “transformed” (Primary Pluto) musical composition in the late nineteenth- and early twentieth century.
