Practical Criticism No. 11—Claude Debussy

In this episode of the Podcast for Social Research’s “Practical Criticism” series, Ajay plays Debussy’s “Jardins sous la pluie” for Rebecca, to whom the object of the week is, as usual, a surprise. Their conversation ranges over virtuosity, empty and full, tone painting, modern music, play, omission, peopling the world of your solitude, Shakespeare’s Richard II, Adorno, and Proust.

n.b. This episode indirectly cites the excellent pandemic playlist that Jacob Gordon is in the process of compiling.
