Musical Quote for Today

"To believe that one can judge a work of art by first impressions is one of the strangest and most dangerous of delusions."
—Claude Debussy, composer/pianist

What happened on this day in music history?

Claude Debussy's opera Pelleas and Melisande was given its first performance at the Opéra Comique in Paris in 1902 with soprano Mary Garden and tenor Jean Perier in the title roles.
