Composed by Claude Debussy. Arranged by Ralph Sauer. French impressionist. Solo part and Piano accompaniment. Published by Cherry Classics (CY.CC2737).

Debussy's General Lavine - eccentric, is taken from his Book II of Piano Preludes written in 1912. It is in the style of a Cakewalk, a dance developed in the late 19th century at get-togethers on slave plantations in the southern United States.

The music is based on Edward Lavine, a famous vaudeville performer whose act was presented at the Marigny Theatre around the same time. It is the only work by Debussy composed as a musical portrait for a human personality.

The music of about 3 minutes in length is appropriate for advanced performers.
