Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Volume 5 of Naxos's acclaimed series of Debussy's orchestral music presents a potpourri of works that were either left incomplete by the composer or were orchestrated by others who greatly admired his music. The rarely-heard children's ballet The Toy Box, dedicated to Debussy's daughter Emma-Claude but not premiered until after the composer's death, recalls the innocent world of his popular Children's Corner suite. Based on Pierre Louys' Chansons de Bilitis, Debussy's Six epigraphes antiques evoke poetic scenes from the ancient world, as does the sole surviving portion of The Triumph of Bacchus.
