I love Debussy’s music especially his piano works. Here is a little piece to celebrate his birthday on this day in 1862 (he died in 1918). It’s from the first book of Préludes and called Girl with the Flaxen Hair (La fille aux cheveux de lin). I recorded this piece at the Wigmore Hall, London in 2002 and it is taken from my Liebesträume disc.
