Prelude a l´Apres-midi d´un Faune and Other Works for Piano Four Hands: Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel
Dating from the last decade of the 19th century, Pelléas et Mélisande points the way into the 20th century. The score is hauntingly beautiful, but there is more to the work than shifting panels of elusive, impressionistic sound. Debussy retains the text of Maeterlinck’s play, and the linguistic subtleties of the French text are matched perfectly by the musical detail. Taking a little time to explore the romantic, elusive world of this opera is particularly rewarding.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio. 1.

Following the recent publication of the full score and performance material to Debussy’s ´´La Mer” (BA 7880), Bärenreiter now presents the study score edition of this ´´impressionistic” masterpiece.The new scholarly-critical edition draws on several important sources previously unavailable to musicologists, resulting in an array of new readings and corrections. In addition, there are many changes, especially in terms of articulation and dynamics.This new edition includes the famous ´´fanfare” in Movement III, clearly marked in small print and brackets. This fanfare was excised in the 1910 reissue of the work, but was reinstated by a number of great conductors who knew Debussy, i.e. Monteux, Münch, Mitropoulos and Ansermet. They felt that the excision was a misunderstanding and that the fanfare was necessary for the structure of the movement. And so, the Bärenreiter edition presents the revival of a performing tradition which is committed to the fanfare.- New Urtext edition with numerous corrections in comparison to other editions- Important sources which were previously inaccessible have been taken into accountEdition no.: TP 780ISMN: 9790006205455Editor: Woodfull-Harris, DouglasLanguage(s) of text: French, English, GermanProduct format: Study score, Urtext editionBinding: PaperbackPages / Format: XXVIII, 158 S. - 22,5 x 16,5 cm
Debussy orchestrated two of the three Gymnopedies composed by his friend Erik Satie after giving an impromptu performance of the piano originals at the home of conductor Gustave Doret, who was so taken with them that he commissioned Debussy to prepare an orchestral setting for an upcoming concert, which was given on Feb. 20, 1897. Though Satie´s piano originals are easily his most famous and beloved work now, they were virtually unknown in 1897. Debussy´s orchestration of the first and last, presented in reverse order, did much to establish the younger composer´s reputation. This newly engraved, critical edition makes these exquistite orchestral miniatures available in an affordable, easy-to-read score for the first time.
This collection of Debussy´s popular intermediate pieces includes Clair de lune, Reverie, La petit ngre, the complete Children´s Corner Suite and other works. The introductory pages discuss symbolist poetry, French Impressionist painters and Debussy´s musical style. A variety of photographs taken throughout the composer´s life are also included. The Alfred Masterwork Library CD Editions conveniently combine each exceptional volume with a professionally recorded CD that is sure to inspire artistic performances. 64 pages. Pianist Scott Price is the chair of the Piano Department at the University of South Carolina and holds a doctorate in piano performance from the University of Oklahoma.

DescriptionFor clarinet and piano. In February 1909, Debussy was elected a member of the Conseil Superieur of the Paris Conservatoire and, in this capacity, was called on to serve on the jury at internal competitions. He was invited to write two test pieces for the 1910 clarinet contest; one for the interpretation class, the other for the sight reading test. The Premiere Rhapsodie was composed during December 1909 and January 1910, concurrently with work on the first book of Preludes for piano.
