The Girl With the Flaxen Hair (La fille aux cheveux de lin)
SMC SU198/ HL 3776040
Mixed Clarinet Quartet
This famous composition (the eighth piece in Debussy's first book of Preludes) is named after the eponymous poem by Leconte de Lisle. It is known for its musical simplicity, which contrasts from Debussy's style at the time. Originally written for piano, Richard Thurston has arranged this beautiful music for mixed clarinet quartet.
