Premiere Rhapsodie and Petite Piece by : Claude Debussy : Ernst-Gunter Heinemann : Klaus Schilde
Originally written for the final year clarinet examination at the Paris Conservatoire; Debussy's “Première Rhapsodie” has quickly become a bestseller 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. Our edition also contains as a “lollipop” the popular “Petite pièce;” an original work of under forty bars that was in fact devised as a sight-reading test.
“This edition examines all of the previous versions and attempts to provide a final; definitive edition of this revered work...The editor has carefully examined all of the sources and provides extensive notes regarding differences in dynamics; phrasing; and notation...The extensive historical notes alone make it invaluable; and the music is clearly printed on heavy stock with the sometimes problematic page turns eliminated.”--The Clarinet
