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.
