Claude Debussy (1862-1918) had originally intended for Images pour orchestre to be a sequel to the first set of Images for solo piano. However, around 1905, he had decided to orchestrate the compositions rather than set them for two pianos working on them between 1905-1912. The work is written in three movements: I. Gigues, II. Ibéria, and III. Rondes de printemps (Round dances of spring). But each of the three movements are customarily performed individually much as they were published. Gigues was originally titled Gigues tristes, and the music was inspired by Debussy's memories of England, the song Dansons la gigue by Charles Bordes and the Tyneside folk tune The Keel Row. Instrumentation: 2+Picc(2).2+EH+Obd'A.3+BCl.3+CBsn: Timp.Perc(3): Hp(2).Clst: Str (9-8-7-6-5 in set).
