In 1913, three years after publication of the Preludes I, another collection of twelve Preludes appeared. The pieces are longer and make use of a very wide register, which is why Debussy mainly notated them on three staves. As with the first volume of Preludes the programmatic additions only appeared at the end of each piece. The cycle closes with the virtuosic and brilliant Feux d'artifice, fireworks of pianistic bravura in the true sense of the word. The piano writing and title of no. 11, Les tierces alternees, already hints at the twelve Etudes of 1915 (HN 390) with which Debussy was to end his piano ouvre.

    Like the first book, Henle editions are always concise and historically correct. I, personally, adore Debussy's compositions. They often have some sort of mystical quality that is a joy to both perform and listen to.
