Twelve Etudes [Douze Etudes] by : Claude Debussy : Jacob Leuschner
Building on the tradition of the piano study championed by Chopin; Liszt and Scriabin; Debussy composed his Douze Études in 1915; dedicated 'à la mémoire de Frédéric Chopin'. Each taking a small compositional element as a departure point ('five fingers'; 'ornaments' or an interval such as the third or octave); they are really much more than studies; but rather extremely virtuosic character pieces in which all facets of Debussy's pianistic style are showcased. They represent his last significant contribution to the piano repertoire and are a true masterpiece of the genre. This Schott Essential Exercises edition includes a few words on the études from Claude Debussy himself; and a more detailed preface by Jacob Leuschner; including the history of the work and notes on performance.
