DOCTOR GRADUS AD PARNASSUM  from ‘Children’s Corner Suite’ by CLAUDE DEBUSSY for PIANO SOLO. The Latin phrase gradus ad Parnassum means "steps to Parnassus”. Debussy composed Children's Corner between 1906 and 1908. This piece is actually a rather ingenious study in finger independence with a Twentieth Century vocabulary. In the middle, the pianist slows down and tries his material in other keys for exercise. Debussy's Doctor Gradus Ad Parnassum is of intermediate difficulty and requires experienced fingers. The pianist gets wilder toward the end and finishes the piece with a bang. Debussy told his publisher that the movement should be played "very early in the morning".This edition also includes a short biography of Debussy and some facts about the piece.
