Musician's or Publisher's Notes

Early in 1915, disheartened by the approach of World War I and gravely ill with cancer, Claude Debussy still managed to compose. His 12 Etudes would be his last important works for solo piano, and considered his crowning achievement. Pour les arpèges composés (For Composed, or Written-out, Arpeggios), is easily the best-known of all the etudes, and redefines the arpeggio to include a variety of non-harmonic tones.              Notes by Jiyeon Shin
