August 22 – Three Pieces, III. Menuet by Claude Debussy

Claude Debussy was born on this day in 1862. He is most well known for his impressionistic style of composition and his extension of the contemporary limits of harmony and form through the usage of non-traditional scales and chromaticism. The Three Pieces for Flute and Piano are a transcription of movements from two different suites for piano. This movement, Menuet, is from his Petite Suite, L. 65 for four-hands.

Performed by Brianna Futch, flute and Claudio Olivera, piano
