Claude Debussy: Golliwogg's Cakewalk

Books | Piano

Publisher: Schott Music
Composer: Claude Debussy
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

The famous Golliwogg's Cakewalk is the final part of Debussy's Children's Corner series, consisting of 6 miniatures for Piano, which he wrote for his daughter in 1906-1908.


The Ragtime style refers to the dance, which came into fashion around the turn of the century. In the middle part, the composer parodies the beginning of the opera Tristan and Isolde by Richard Wagner several times, to which Debussy had a rather ambiguous relationship.

The present arrangement allows to play the popular set in a version for melody instruments with accompaniment.
