    The printing is clear. The arrangement is not always satisfactory, since what Debussy wrote is somewhat spare, but without a wasted note. The Büsser arrangement for 8 hands adds unneccessary tremolos. Towards the end of the 3rd movment, there is an unfortunate error in dynamics where Debussy indicates "ppp...

    " 8 m. after # 17, the Büsser says "pp", and in the penultimate measure, D. says "pppp" and the Büsser score says "pp".
