"No composer in musical history has taught the pianist more new and permanently valuable things," says Grove's Dictionary of Music and Musicians, describing Impressionist Claude Debussy. This new compilation of the composer's most colorfully atmospheric works attests to his extraordinary powers of invention and to his reassessment of keyboard color and technique. Twenty selections range from such fanciful pieces as the impudent "Golligwogg's cakewalk" and the misty "Sunken Cathedral" to the brilliant "Fireworks." A rich compilation of works by France's most innovative and influential composer, this convenient and modestly priced volume will be welcomed by pianists, students, teachers, and music lovers. Dover original compilation of works from authoritative editions.

About the author (2002)

French composer Claude Debussy (1862–1918) was one of the most prominent figures working within the field of impressionist music, although he disliked the term when applied to his compositions. A central figure in European music of the turn of the 20th century, he was made Chevalier of the Legion of Honor in 1903.
