Debussy Masterpieces for Solo Piano: 20 Works
In describing impressionist Claude Debussy, Grove’s Dictionary of Music and Musician says, “No composer in musical history has taught the pianist more new and permanently valuable things”. This new compilation of the composer’s most distinctive and atmospheric pieces attests to his extraordinary powers of invention and to his reassessment of keyboard color and technique.
Among the twenty works included here are such all-time favorites as the impudent “Golligwogg’s cakewalk”, the haunting “Engulfed cathedral” and the electrifying “Fireworks”, along with such keyboard gems as the beloved “Clair delune”, “Gardens in the rain”, “The girl with the flaxen hair”, “Ondine”, and thirteen more Debussy classics.
Pianists, students, teachers, and music lovers will welcome the convenience and modest price of this rich compilation of works by France’s most innovative and influential composer.
