Claude Debussy: Children's Corner
Children´s Corner was written for Debussy´s three-year-old daughter, Claude-Emma (nicknamed "Chou-Chou"), and bears the dedication: "to my dear Chou-Chou, with the tender apologies of her father for what is to follow."
The pieces are not meant for children to play; rather they are meant to evoke the mood and essence of childhood. The titles, all of them in English, reflect both Debussy´s own affection for England, and Chou-Chou´s relationship with her English nanny.
The suite opens with a light-hearted parody of Clementi’s “Gradus ad Parnassum”, and closes with "Golliwogg´s Cake Walk", a piece inspired by American ragtime music. Its title comes from a doll, the “Golliwogg”, that was popular at the time.

|dear people of piano st.,
debussy's suite children's corner have had several recordings. i'm working on a research about the work and i must locate as many recordings as possible. so, i ask you: what recordings (CD, vinyl, tape, mp3, youtube) of children's corner do you know?
please notice that it is not a request for the recording itself, but the name of the pianist who did it, and further information (date, label, CD code, link) if available.
thanks a lot in advance! it will be mostly helpful.
