These were the formative years, and for Debussy they were invaluable as they provided him with just the opportunity he needed of completing his rather rudimentary education by actual contact wkh the leading literary and artistic personalities of the day. He is the greatest of all composers, of all time, because of the intellectual depth of his music, the technical demand, and the artistic beauty. Unlike Wagner's complex system of explicit Leitmotifs, Debussy favored a more general poetic evocation of moods, atmospheric landscapes and impressions--leading many to call his music of this period "impressionistic" after the current French style of painting popularized by Claude Monet.

There he deepened his acquaintance with Wagner, though it was the music of Strauss, which he met at the Budapest premiere of Also sprach Zarathustra in 1902, that had most influence. Debussy wrote "Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune", which was directly influenced by Mallarmé’s poem “Afternoon of a Faun.” Like the symbolists in respect to their own art forms, Debussy aimed to reject common techniques and approaches to composition and attempted to evoke more of a sensorial experience for the listener with his works.
