Debussy's famous piano piece 'The little negro' is one of the first classical piano pieces that takes up stylistic elements from jazz music: the then very popular 'Cake Walk' was inspired by Parisian circus artists like the clown Georg Fotitt and his black assistant Chocolat. The popular piece was published in the 'Méthode élémentaire de Piano' by Théodore Lack (for two hands) in 1909. Now it is available in a version for piano duet, easily arranged for lovers of piano duet playing and for tuition.
