Danse, L77
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Unlike many modern-day writers on Debussy, I have a soft spot for one of his first piano pieces, Danse (originally called Tarantelle styrienne). First published in 1891, it was orchestrated by Ravel in 1923. It is a sort of preliminary study for his later masterpiece Masques. The high-spirited dance rhythms of the opening are of course immensely attractive, but it is especially in the middle section that we have a whiff of what’s to come.
