Debussy - Petite Suite (wind quintet and piano)
Arranged for wind quintet and piano
CONTENTS: En bateau, Cortège, Menuet, Ballet
Claude Debussy composed his Petite Suite in 1886-1889, originally as a work for piano duet. It is a relatively early piece and displays influences of the popular French composers of the day such as Délibes, Massenet and Bizet. The first two movements take their titles from poems by Paul Verlaine, a poet who greatly influenced Debussy, in particular with his set Fêtes galantes. This arrangement for wind quintet and piano is based on both the piano original and the 1907 orchestration by Debussy's friend Henri Büsser.
Instrumentation: flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, horn, piano
