"La Fille aux Cheveux de Lin" is the eighth piece in Debussy’s First Book of Preludes for piano. Inspired by a poem of Leconte de Lisle, this deceptively simple piece has been set in multiple formats. This setting for Clarinet in Bb and string quartet allows the original feeling of the piece to come through. It should be played very quietly and gently with a constant ear to the melody. With all the parts in balance, this setting sets forth the true sound I believe Debussy intended.
