Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a must have for any serious pianist. I am a piano teacher and find the information invaluable to pass on to my advanced students. All the piano works of Debussy are included. The remarks are insightful and helpful to both understanding the intent of the compostion and the performance of the piece. I've been looking for a copy of this book for several years and was happy to have finally found it.

This book helped me gain a new perspective on Debussy's works and really helped prompt and inspire me as a Composition Major to emulate some of the devices and inspirations discussed in this book. Excellent read for anyone who knows and loves this great composer and the contributions he made to music.

Excellent book. I have used this for decades but had loaned my copy out and it was not returned.
This is a replacement for a book that I have had for at least 25 years.

I love this book. Schmitz writes very poetically as well as his words "INSPIRE" one with new visions and feelings for Debussy's marvelous keyboard creations. I actually have written many of Schmitz's insights into the margins of my scores of the Preludes B1&2. I find that today we become at times so enamored to the "written" score we loose the magic of imagination and freedom that these works are about. PLEASURE and JOY!

I perform his ... La cathedrale engloute on my youtube site. I loved the book.
