Musician's or Publisher's Notes
1. Animé et très décidé
2. Assez vif et bien rythmé
The famous 'Gamelan' movement from Debussy's only String Quartet (1893). In 1889 Debussy heard an Indonesian Gamelan for the first time at the World Exposition in Paris (for which the Eiffel Tower was built). Four years later his impression of the Gamelan, particularly its harmonic/melodic structure (each instrument repeating only a few notes over and over, creating a fascinating rhythmic layering effect), came out in the second movement of his first and only String Quartet, Op.10 in G.
