Consisting of four movements, this work for one piano/four hands shows the influence of the French lyric opera composers Gounod and Massenet. Debussy composed this work before he had fully developed his Impressionistic style, and with its clarity of patterns and conciseness of form, Debussy pays a kind of homage to the French clavecinists. Dr. Hinson has included translations of French terms, notes on performance and a discussion of the duet performance. A Federation Festivals 2016-2020 selection.

    This composition is easy to sight read. Most movements are at my intermediate level, one or two others a little more difficult.
