Debussy's piano cycles and more substantial single pieces are listed as single editions in Henle's catalogue. A further twelve, mostly shorter pieces have been collected in this little volume. The pieces in this edition cover the whole of the composer's creative life – from the Danse bohémienne by the 18-year-old youth and the demanding, dense D'un cahier d'esquisses (From a sketchbook) to the Élégie that was published in 1916. The volume provides players with an introduction to Debussy's piano works that is not too difficult, but it also includes pieces for more advanced players. Thus it is warmly recommended for piano teachers.
