  • March 19, 2009 homage a Debussy

    This was Debussy's final piece of piano music - completely unknown until discovered in a trunk in 2001. It was written as thanks and likely payment for a precious coal delivery during the latter part of WWI shortly before Debussy died. It's not Debussy's greatest work - but has...

    a number of references to his Preludes and reminds me of a someone reminiscing about the past. It's a 2 page work - don't let the 6 pg reference here confuse you. Nicely laid out. An interesting piece for the fan of Debussy's Preludes.
