Midday Music Playlist for 08/22/2012

Pathbreaking French composer Claude Debussy was born on this date 150 years ago, August 22, 1862. In his honor, a mostly Debussy edition of Midday Music. We'll detour once an hour to another composer, just so you don't completely float off into a Debussy-induced reverie. Otherwise, it's wall-to-wall Claude.
