Debussy christened him ‘the precursor' because of his early harmonic innovations, though he surpassed his friend's conception of him by anticipating most of the ‘advances' of 20th-century music - from organized total chromaticism to minimalism. To some extent he made a virtue of his technical limitations, but his painstaking quest for perfection in simplicity, coupled with his ironic wit and his shrewd awareness of developments in other fields of contemporary art, made him the personification of the wartime esprit nouveau in France."
