ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Editor's Notes:
Claude Achille Debussy (1862-1918) is regarded as the creator and leading figure of musical Impressionism, despite the fact that he deplored the term and denied his role in the movement. This, however, cannot alter the essential truth that, like Monet in painting and Mallarmé in poetry, Debussy introduced a new style of composition through many novel musical devices. These include the use of the Oriental pentatonic scale, the whole-tone scale, consecutive parallel chords and intervals, unresolved harmonies and the abandonment of traditional form.

In this album, I have included the pieces by Debussy that I teach most often and that serve as an excellent introduction to the performance of Impressionist music. The subtle shadings and balance of sound, as well as the complicated use of the pedal, can be challenging performance techniques. We at Academy Records hope that students will find these beautiful performances to be helpful examples of Debussy's unique style.

The pieces on this album have also been compiled into a book, available through your music dealer. Please ask for "Debussy; Selected Works for Piano, Compiled and Edited by Keith Snell" , Neil A. Kjos Music Company, Publishers (GP380).

Sincerely,
Keith Snell, Producer
