Debussy in Proportion: A Musical Analysis  

In this book Dr Roy Howat explores through his stimulating and provocative study of Debussy' unorthadox musical form where and why he may have learnt such techniques.Through analysis of 2 of Debussy's piano pieces he demonstrates how they are built around the two ratios of Golden section and bisection so that the music is arranged in geometrical patterns. There is evidence that Debussy was involved in the Symbolist movement and in esotericism.
