Staff Pick

“Core repertoire for clarinettists, with delectable print quality”

Charles Sinden Just Flutes staff member

Originally written for the final year clarinet examination at the Paris Conservatoire, Debussy’s Première Rhapsodie quickly became a staple part of the clarinet repertoire, being a highly impressionistic work that plays marvellously with the timbral possibilities of the clarinet.

Its success was so pervasive that Debussy later arranged the piano accompaniment for orchestra, and in this form the rhapsody is today to be heard all around the world.

This edition also contains the popular Petite pièce, an original work of under forty bars that was in fact devised as a sight-reading test.
