L'Isle Joyeuse by : Claude Debussy
This colorful; highly virtuosic piano piece is often associated with the island of Jersey; where Debussy secretly spent the summer of 1904 with his new love Emma Bardac. Even if he wrote the autograph during this time; it has been ascertained that the work was composed at an earlier date and was intended as part of the “Suite bergamasque.” During his stay on the island; Debussy revised the composition; giving the “Isle joyeuse” its present-day form. We are publishing the manuscript as a valuable facsimile edition to mark Debussy's anniversary year 2012. In brilliant multicolour printing and with an extensive commentary; it meets the highest aesthetic and scholarly demands.
