No really having love affairs with these men
and I for sure would not trust Debussy if I was a woman. Read his biographies when his wife founds out about Claude's morning walks leading to another younger woman? When he arrives home again and she confronts him with it, she shoots herself in the chest but miraculous survives. Claude still abandoned her for his younger mistress and so the stories with Claude and women goes on. Quite the opposite of the aristocratic and gentleman Chopin who's connection with women still quite a bit different (and disputable). But the poor Chopin never got his Maria Wodzinska to whom he proposed to (to her and her mother's happiness while her father said no) but never got and mourned her all of his life. When he died, they found her letters wrapped together and marked "My great sorrow". Maria married someone rich who died young, never got any children, got blind early and lived unhappy too.
Getting quite out of topic here
I do like your Brahms with its "cheering up mood" and it is really fun to play don't you think? Never got through it well myself and more or less just browsed through it. I have not studied the Debussy but it is a nice piece with a melancolique touch (as in many of Debussy's works) and you play it good. Perhaps I should try your trick Monica with a merlot in the evening but I would freeze to death if I sit outside. It has been a really cold spring this year.
