Composed between 1906 and 1908, the Children's Corner Suite was written to capture the essence of childhood with charm, grace and humor. Debussy's intention was to create moods and sensations and, utilizing his typical harmonic richness, he succeeds in an appealing and joyous fashion. This edition is based on not only the original autograph manuscripts but also on Debussy's sound recording of these pieces.
