Claude Debussy: Children's Corner Suite

Books | Piano

Publisher: Alfred Publishing
Composer: Claude Debussy
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album
Debussy was a unique and progressive composer, whose independent approach to form, harmony and colour dominates his piano pieces. The Children's Corner Suite, composed between 1906 and 1908, is not necessarily intended to be played by children, or even to children, but is intended to capture the essence of childhood with charm, grace and humour. The music was inspired by, and reflects, the world of childhood fantasy. It was once described as portraying the games, escapades and gestures of a small girl from Paris. Debussy's intention was to create moods and sensations and, utilising his typical harmonic richness and mastery of the impressionistic style, he succeeds in an appealing and joyous fashion.
