Images, Book 1
By Claude Debussy / ed. Maurice Hinson
Alfred Masterwork Edition
Composed in 1905 this volume of Images, comprised of three contrasting pieces, demonstrates conciseness, deep dramatic content and colorful tonal imagery. Debussy established Impressionism as a pianistic style and used evocative terms to shed light on the mood or character of each piece. Maurice Hinson translates the French titles into English and offers practice suggestions to assist the performer. Also included is an outstanding CD recording from the Naxos label.
