  • 2012-08-27 00:00:00.0 Remarkable Edition

    It is difficult to ascertain with certainty the final desires of Debussy due to mishandling of the original edition by the first publisher. The work was later republished, but it was done in haste with some errors creeping into that edition. Thus, the work of putting out a reliable urtext...

    requires a great deal of research. This edition documents that research unlike what I have seen in most editions. It also includes useful fingering, making this edition a cut above the others. There are also useful performing notes in the front matter, notes that enable the performer to understand Debussy’s intentions and style. Finally, the pages in this edition lie flat and stay open to each page. The print is clear and easy to read as well. Sometimes expensive editions are not worth the added cost, but this one is well worth the additional $5 over the Peters or Schirmer.

  • 2010-05-02 00:00:00.0 Great works in a fantastic edition

    The works are very interesting and pleasant to play (I obviously love "Clair de lune", but the Prelude and the Menuet are fantastic too). There is a great introduction in six pages, with a genesis, the publication history, aesthetics and performance practise... The book is in big dimentions (9,5...

    x 12.6 inches) and, as you can see in the scan, the printing is very clear and big. The fingerings are often helpful. And it is one of the rares score I have bought, which stays really in place !
