7. Clair de lune: from Suite Bergamasque (Alfred Masterwork Edition)

Author: by Claude Debussy
Published at: Alfred Music (July 1, 1982)
ISBN: 978-0739012925

View on Amazon

The original, unsimplified version of one of Debussy’s most popular piano works. This ethereal, flowing section of Suite Bergamasque is diatonic and displays a conventional harmonic vocabulary in D-flat major. The title, Clair de lune, suggests a relationship to Paul Verlaine’s eponymous poem, describing a vision of long-dead dancers in the moonlight.

The music transmits the otherworldly, transparent, and impalpable qualities of the experience while maintaining clarity and definition. Perfect for the burgeoning late intermediate pianist. Edited by Willard A.Palmer.

Author: by Claude Debussy
Published at: Dover Publications; 2nd edition (June 1, 1974)
ISBN: 978-0486227719

View on Amazon

This volume contains the complete music for solo piano written by Claude Debussy between 1888 and 1905. Beginning with Deux Arabesques (1888), it offers the Suite bergamasque (18901905), Rverie (1890), Danse (1890), Ballade (1890), Pour le piano (18961901), D’un cahier d’esquisses (1903), Extampes (1903), Mazurka (1891), Valse romantique (1890), Masques (1904), L’Isle joyeuse (1904), and the first series of Images (1905): Reflets dans l’eau, Hommage a Rameau, and Mouvement.

In each case the music has been reproduced photographically from original or early editions. This book has been designed to be used at the piano. Noteheads are large and clearly printed: margins and spaces are adequate for written notes, fingerings, and turnovers.

It is also most useful, of course, for analysis or simply for listening along with the music.

Composed between 1906 and 1908, the Children’s Corner Suite was written to capture the essence of childhood with charm, grace and humor. Debussy’s intention was to create moods and sensations and, utilizing his typical harmonic richness, he succeeds in an appealing and joyous fashion.

“It may be in fact that I have taken on a task that is too much for me: there is no precedent, so I am obliged to invent new forms.” Claude Debussy. Unquestionably one of the most influential of modern composers, Claude Debussy (18621918) overturned traditional concepts of form, harmony, and coloring in creating a body of music characterized by innovation, individuality of style, and perfection of workmanship.

Among his most popular, most performed, most recorded works are the three compositions reprinted in this volume: the revolutionary Prlude l’aprs-midi d’une faune, which, in a sense, “awakened” modern music; the exquisite Nocturnes, shimmering models of delicate impressionism; and La Mer, complex, suggestive, a masterpiece of orchestral texture.

This Dover volume presents the complete scores of all three works reproduced from early French editions in one convenient source. Musicians and music lovers will appreciate this inexpensive edition of a trio of orchestral favorites: pieces that mark not only key points in the composer’s personal progress but also in the progress of modern music as well.

Author: by Claude Debussy
Published at: Alfred Music (September 1, 1985)

Debussy was not referring to “arabesque” in the form of a ballet term but rather to the meaning of “arabesque” as a piece with exquisite detail and clear repetitions of ideas and artistic balance. These pieces were written in 1888 during Debussy’s earliest compositional period.

16. A Night at the Opera: An Irreverent Guide to The Plots, The Singers, The Composers, The Recordings (Modern Library (Paperback))

Author: by Denis Sir Forman

View on Amazon

Delightful and anti-reverentialSunday Times (London)With an encyclopedic knowledge of opera and a delightful dash of irreverence, Sir Denis Forman throws open the world of operaits structure, composers, conductors, and artistsin this hugely informative guide. A Night at the Opera dissects the eighty-three most popular operas recorded on compact disc, from Cilea’s Adriana Lecouvreur to Mozart’s Die Zauberflte.

For each opera, Sir Denis details the plot and cast of characters, awarding stars to parts that are worth looking out for, really good, or, occasionally, stunning. He goes on to tell the history of each opera and its early reception.

Finally, each work is graded from alpha to gamma (although the Ring cycle gets an X), and Sir Denis has no qualms about voicing his opinion: the first act of Fidelio is a bit of a mess, while the last scene of Don Giovanni towers above the comic finales of Figaro and Cos and whether or not [it] is Mozart’s greatest opera, it is certainly his most powerful finale.
