These four moderately long pieces, composed from 1886-1889, are in Debussy's early style, which is less impressionistic. They are only moderately difficult and run the gamut from the magnificent Ballet with its lovely 'Tempo di Valse' section to the animated 'Cortege.' Fun and rewarding music in the French nineteenth-century idiom. Includes complete printed music score with both primo and secondo piano parts, and a compact disc featuring the duets in two formats: split-channel stereo with secondo part on the left channel, primo on the right, so you can play either part; and then again with just the secondo part in stereo so you can perform the primo part alongside.
Performed by Sondra Bianca, piano
Accompaniment: Harriet Wingreen, piano.
