Debussy's first Rhapsodie For Clarinet, and his Rhapsodie For Saxophone were both originally composed as chamber works with Piano accompaniments. Later the composer arranged both pieces for full Orchestra, and this unique volume contains the orchestral score and the Piano chamber arrangement of both works. As a composer principally regarded as part of the French Impressionist movement, Debussy's music is characterised by some profound innovations in orchestration and the blending of instrumental tones, favouring the warmth of the woodwind over the previously dominant strings. This unusual edition offers an opportunity to examine Debussy's use of orchestral timbre, by comparing each score to its original chamber version. Furthermore, the Piano versions of each work, stripped to their very essentials, provide an intriguing and candid glimpse into Debussy's harmonic approach. Reprinted from authoritative early editions.

Originally composed as chamber works with piano, these works were later transformed by the composer into orchestral form. This volume consists of both works with piano accompaniment as well as in full score. Debussy's "Clarinet Rhapsody" is the instrument's first truly important twentieth-century work. Like the "Saxophone Rhapsody", it offers revealing insights into the composer's sense of orchestration. Both pieces are staples of the repertoire for their respective instruments, and their piano reductions provide intriguing glimpses into Debussy's harmonic mind. This new edition is the only available one that includes chamber and orchestral versions of these popular works.
