Composed by Claude Debussy. Arranged by Ralph Sauer. French Impressionist. Solo part and Piano accompaniment. Published by Cherry Classics (CY.CC2842).

One of the greatest works of the French impressionist era, Prelude a l'apres-midi d'un faune by Claude Debussy evokes mystery, stillness, lyricism, finesse, sensuality, nature, dreams and desires. Taken from a poem by Stephane Mallarme this work is considered by some to be a turning point of musical history as an "awakening of modern music" as it "stretches the limits of tonality". The work was later choreographed in 1912 by Nijinsky.

This marvelous arrangement by Ralph Sauer is appropriate for advanced performers and is about 10 minutes in length.
