Preludes, Book 1
After several single pieces and several smaller piano cycles, in 1910 the recently composed PrÌ©ludes, Premier Livre was published. The title draws on a traditional form, following ChopinåÕs example. In addition Debussy discreetly characterized his PrÌ©ludes by dispensing with titles but giving the pieces programmatic directions at the end of each PrÌ©lude. This first volume became an immediate success and even today is considered to be the epitome of Debussy s piano artistry. Late Intermediate to advanced.
