||Fac-similés d'œuvres de Claude Debussy, . Paris, 2019. Upright, 26.5 x 35 cm, vi, 30 pp.|
In order to strengthen its editorial policy, the Centre de documentation Claude Debussy has decided to present Debussy’s autograph manuscripts to the public by publishing facsimiles of his works. This new facsimile series, of which this is the fifth, takes particular care in being completely faithful to the original, respecting the size, the colors of the inks or pencils used, as well as the quality of the paper of the documents. Such publications are greatly appreciated by performers and musicologists. Debussy's manuscripts are scattered all over the world both in private and public collections.
4-color facsimile of the autograph, written in 1903 and dedicated to his friend the painter Jacques-Émile Blanche. A triptique of 3 short pieces entitled “Pagodes” (Pagodas), “La soirée dans Grenade” (The Evening in Granada) and “Jardins sous la pluie” (Gardens in the Rain). Estampes (or ”Prints”) are not a random selection but the distinctive sound pictures of three locations: A Javanese gamelan, a Spanish habanera and French children’s songs. Preface in Fr/Eng by Pierre Boulez. Wrappers with exposed stitching, in special art paper.
