In response to locobotics - I've played both pieces you mentioned and there are aspects of the Debussy Rapsodie that were more challenging for me musically than either the Ibert or the Maurice. There is a piano reduction by Vincent David that has transcribed all the themes from the oboes & flutes (as well as some orchestral parts) and makes the saxophone take on a more central role in the piece. The subtle nuances and emphasis on tone color and timbre makes this one of my favorites.

Gabriel Soileau

So beautiful, the dissonances accentuate the pretty parts. Debussy outdoes himself again!


Soo utterly beautiful! I've never heard this piece before. Thanks for posting!

Valentina Wijnands

Ah very nice performance beutiful sound and great technique,I wonder perhaps the vibrato could be a little less at some points. great!

 Debussy, who cared little for the instrument and knew almost nothing of its technical capabilities, would not fulfill the commission for the Rhapsodie for several years; indeed, when he did submit his score, it was incomplete and unorchestrated.
 He wrote a rough draft of just three or four staves, with much of the score still missing. Jean Roger-Ducasse undertook the task of completing the work after the composer's death, in a manner which showed how well he understood Debussy's musical language.


I see where you got this information off the internet, but I am not able to find proper citations anywhere.


....beautiful makes me wanna go practice :) for those of you complaining about the arrangment - look at the history of the piece - who the composer was and who commissioned it - should be clear. yes there are other versions with more playing time, but not appropriate if you have an oboe to play the oboe line - etc, its all about COLOR! but yes beautiful playing
