Notes & Reviews:

In 1891 Symbolist poet Stéphane Mallarmé asked Debussy to compose incidental music for a theatrical version of his poem L'Après-midi d'un faune (The afternoon of the faun) and the resulting work, with its innovative melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic writing, is both impassioned and expressive. The four-hand arrangement was made by Ravel in 1910. Subtitled "esquisses symphoniques" - or symphonic sketches - La Mer, inspired by the natural phenomena of water, light and wind, is a masterpiece that doesn't conform to structural convention. Of the evocatively enchanting Images, he wrote that it marked a departure for him, dealing with "realities" not impressionism.
