Transpose 0. Musician's or Publisher's Notes Claude Debussy composed his two books of preludes during a remarkably brief period—the first, between December and February ; and the second, during roughly the same period in Debussy, in keeping with the artistic philosophy of his day, also composed each prelude with specific scene or image in mind. Yet, to partially disguise these intents from the listener and to allow his audience to discover them of their own accord, Debussy craftily placed his titles at the end of each prelude.
Performance practice of the preludes varies. In bar 10 the right hand has to play and hold a D, then plays a C, lifting this note up, following this with a B, which is then held, followed by an A which is not held and finally a G which is held.
It requires real mental effort to not lift the wrong fingers up. Without these held notes though, the richness of the sound is lost, so I really want to learn it properly, and not practice wrong fingering which will need to be unlearnt.
There is also the issue of how to play the last notes of bar 6. The left hand needs to play an E2 a B2 a G3 and a B3; since this is not possible with one hand you need to bridge all the notes. My piano teacher has taught me to roll the low E and the B early and then play the G and B together on the beat.
Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli plays the low E and then the other 3 notes on the beat, whereas Lang Lang rolls all 4 of the notes so that the last B is on the beat. For now I will do as I am told by my teacher. Until I can perfect The Girl with the Flaxen Hair myself and can post up a video of me playing, I have linked to a video of the acclaimed pianist Michelangeli playing it.
