Debussy – Ballade for violin, cello and harp (or piano), arr. D. Piana
Pages: 13+7+2+2 pgs.
Ballade is one of Debussy’s earliest piano pieces, originally entitled Ballade russe. Inspired by its haunting melodic qualities, coupled with some very harp-like writing, D. Piana decided to transcribe it for violin, cello and harp, on the occasion of a French-themed concert by her chamber group, the Pleasanton Chamber Players. This transcription provides another opportunity for highly refined collaborative work for lovers of the “Debussy sound”.
