The French composer Claude Achille Debussy lived from 1862 to 1918.

Debussy's Six Antique Epigrams are based on erotic poetry from the sixth century B.C. Nude dancers performed at Debussy's one and only performance of them in 1901. We hear them performed at Music from Salem in New York. Nina Tichman and David Breitman play piano four hands.
