Prelude à l'Apres-midi d'un Faune & Other Works for Four Hands
From the Publisher
Here are two suites Debussy composed specifically for piano four hands, Petite Suite and Six Épigraphes Antiques, plus Ravel's arrangement for four hands of Debussy's Prélude à l'Après-midi d'un Faune and a piano four hands version of Prélude, Cortège and Air de Danse from L'Enfant Prodigue.
These works range widely in mood, displaying both the brilliant pianism at the heart of Debussy's musical imagery and the composer's affinity for the unexpected. Reprinted from authoritative French editions, these works display innovative musical qualities that will both delight and challenge pianists.
