Every weekday morning at 10 a.m., the hosts at Classical MPR play a standout work based on the theme for the week. We call them Morning Glories.
This coming Saturday marks 153 years since the birth of French composer Claude Debussy. To celebrate, this week's Morning Glories are a sampler of the impressionist's output.
