    Piano version of Debussy's Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faune?

    I have had no luck finding a recording of Debussy's original piano version of Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faune. It seems the only version available is the orchestrated one by Ravel?

    Debussy did the original orchestration.Ravel made a version for two pianos which has been recorded and is available from www.amazon.com

    Really? I always had thought Ravel did the orchestration for that piece. Is there a good source of information on exactly which pieces Ravel orchestrated for Debussy?

    An interesting side note, Debussy composed most of his orchestral works specifically for orchestra unlike Ravel who for the most part orchestrated his own and others piano works.

    A friend of Debussy's orchestrated the Children's corner suite and some Preludes but I'm not sure which Ravel did.

    Cheers,
