An absolute gem from Debussy, from his "Children's Corner" suite - "The Little Shepherd" - dating from 1909. One of my favourite pieces to play - so a tryout on Auth. Steinway was in order.
Classic perspective with a little Concert Hall 1 reverb.
A gem it is, like all pieces from the same suite!
One of my favorites too... and you did it justice.
The only thing I miss is the little crescendo from 1:26 to 1:32... but that is my personal taste...
Thanks for posting and reminding me of this sweet suite.
Eugene, Thank you for sharing this piece, it was a treat for me as I wasn't familiar with the "Children's Corner" suite. I have now listened to your rendition about ten times trying to figure out what Debussy was up to. Regards, John
Thanks to all for your comments on this piece. The popularity of the work is reflected in the multitude of recordings by major pianists over the years. There are also arrangements for other ensembles, including orchestral.
The rest of the suite is enjoyable also and worth getting to know, the most famous piece being the "Golliwog's Cakewalk".
