The impressionist movement in music was a movement in Europen classical music. It was mostly in France. It began in the late nineteenth century and ended in the middle of the Twentieth Century. There were two very famous composers of this movement, Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel. Debussy actually did not like the term 'Impressionist' in his works.
