La plus que lente - Valse by : Claude Debussy : Ernst-Gunter Heinemann
Fingering by Hans-Martin Theopold
Slow waltzes enjoyed a special vogue in Parisian salons of the early twentieth century; leading Debussy - with a twinkle in his eye - to produce his piano waltz “La plus que lente” (“The Slower-than-Slow”). Parisian publisher Durand brought Debussy's piano waltz; issued in July 1910; to a wider public by publishing it that same year as a supplement to Le Figaro; as well as in arrangements (by others) for violin and piano and for piano; 4-hands. Debussy himself produced a version for orchestra; and in 1913 he even - at a rather faster tempo - recorded it on a piano roll for the Welte-Mignon company. This work; headed “molto rubato con morbidezza” (with much rubato; morbidly); is now available as a separate Henle Urtext Edition. A preface; extended from those in the anthology volumes 51481194 and 51480404; will stimulate curiosity about this charming miniature waltz.
