Debussy intentionally did not place titles at the top of his Preludes for piano (HN 383), published in 1910, but merely wrote them at the end and in parentheses - almost as a belated comment on the piece just played. Nevertheless, no. 8 in the collection, 'La Fille aux cheveux de lin' (The girl with the flaxen hair), has become famous in its own right. This image perfectly fits the dreamy graceful music. And ever since, the prelude has been the object of numerous arrangements for other scorings. Our single edition of this much-loved piece contains the Urtext musical text for piano and also includes a detailed preface.
