"La Fille aux Cheveux de Lin" is part of Debussy’s First Book of Preludes for piano. Named for a poem by Leconte de Lisle, "The Girl with the Flaxen Hair has been set in multiple formats.I have here arranged this simple piece for woodwind quintet in the key of C major rather than the original Gb major. I feel that this key sets well with this grouping allowing each instrument to be displayed at it’s finest.The piece is deceptively challenging. It must be performed very quietly and with a thorough understanding of the original. It can be very beautiful and moving if performed correctly or it can simply become "Some Blonde Chick".
