    It might seem a little odd for me to suggest this, but...

    Anton Webern's "Im Sommerwind, idyll for orchestra" seems to me to have quite a strong impressionist influence.

    Ravel's "Concerto for the Left Hand" is remarkable, as is Debussy's "Images for orchestra"

    I also see a very strong impressionist leaning in Stravinsky's ballet and suite of "The Firebird."

    I often think that the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day. ~Vincent Van Gogh

  • George Butterworth - The Banks of Green Willow
    Ralph Vaughn-Williams - The Lark Ascending
    Claude Debussy - Nuages
    Maurice Ravel - L'Arlesienne
    Gustav Holst - Neptune
    Gustav Holst - Mars

    I'm in the middle of 15 things, all of them annoying
  • strangely i hear a pretty impressionist influence in masashi hamauzu's arrangements for the final fantasy piano collections especially no. 10 and 13
    daphnis et chloe: ravel (especially the 17th and 20th movements)
    debussy: nocturnes
    dukas: la peri
    vaughan wiliams : the lark ascending
    and yes i also detect a slightly impressionist influence on stravinsky's the firebird its just a little harsher than most impressionism

  • ARTURO BENEDETTI MICHELANGELI - CLAUDE DEBUSSY - CHILDREN´S CORNER
