Deux Arabesques, L74

composer
circa 1890; published in 1891

 
These two early piano pieces, published in 1891, are the musical equivalents of designs in Arabian art of interlacing patterns in graceful curves. Charming and rhapsodic, their 'delicate tracery' and 'twining counterpoints', to quote Debussy’s own words, find extra colourings and subtleties in the orchestral forms presented here.
