Ten days before Debussy passed away the young composer Lili Boulanger died, also in Paris. She was the sister of the famous pianist, composer and pedagogue Nadia Boulanger. Lili studied at the conservatoire in Paris and was, of course, influenced by Debussy. She found her own musical direction however and in 1913 she became the first woman to win the Pris de Rome. She had a weak health but kept on composing and built up an impressive oeuvre. Her music often shows a dark character, perhaps influenced by her disease, but also has a very touching, naïve, even optimistic side.
