This may well be the perfect introduction to the flavor and style of Debussy's work. Written in G-flat major, the song's tempo is "very calm and sweetly expressive," and the best elements of impressionism are revealed in the sweeping phrases, parallelism, and sixth and seventh chords. Performance notes and English translations are included.

    The copy I ordered is an excellent intermediate arrangement. I have a cd with La fille aux cheveux de lin on it, and it is a very close rendition. I'm very pleased with it.
