Classical IPR has curated an on-demand playlist of classical music inspired by Impressionism.

Impressionist painters like Claude Monet and James McNeill Whistler emphasized light, movement and nature.

In music, Impressionism focuses on moods and feelings instead of specific stories or forms.

What impressions do you get listening to this playlist of music by Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel, Charles Tomlinson Griffes, Lili Boulanger and others?

Listen on demand below or in the Spotify app. You'll need a free Spotify account to get started.

Dr. Amanda Sewell is IPR's music director.
