Claude Debussy: Images Book I

Published in 1905 and 1907 respectively, the two sets of Images for solo piano are often considered the first examples of Debussy´s wholly mature language and style.
Many people would place the first  piece of the first Book, Reflets dans l’eau (Reflections on the Water) among the composer’s most beautiful works, although Debussy himself came to dislike it.
Hommage ŕ Rameau
probably owes its existence to Debussy´s participation in the editing of Rameau´s opera-ballets.
The last piece of the first book, Mouvement, is a rather enigmatic toccata, ending in a long diminuendo at the extreme ends of the keyboard.

xx Which pieces should I choose?Liszt, Rach, Chopin or Debusyy?
October 29, 2010, 07:33:10 PM by keyb0ardfweak

Hi!

It's my first year in the conservatory and I wanted to ask all of you what you would recommend me to do.

Btw, I am in the 7th year of 10

I ask opinions here. The only problem is if I am doing correctly or not.
Because my teacher believes I can and she demands me to play this on december and on may...

Anyways, the pieces I would like to choose are:

- Liszt - "Ballade no.1" (This one has to be in May) or "Un suspiro etude"
- Rachmaninoff - "Prelude Op.3 no.2" or "Prelude Op.23 no.5"
- Scarlatti - "K.141" or "K.87"
- Chopin - "Scherzo Op.20" or "Etude Op.10 no.8"
- Debussy - One of the "Images" book, AND, I was thinking of "L'isle joyeuse"


On december I have to play Bach's Prelude and fugue 2 (WTC 1), Chopin's etude op.10 no.6 and Scarlatti's Sonata "K.141"..I would like to play something more challenging..

Now..I have a BIG problem

Personally, she tells me, and some other friends that I can play all of that stuff!!
But..I don't feel like I can!!=S


I am 19 years old and I've been playing since 11-12

I would like you to help me on how to memorize all of this o.O

It seems hard for me

Hello, this is my first post here. I recently recorded these in my home studio. Since you can only upload 4 at a time, I'm uploading the second book in the next post. I hope you enjoy them!
Thanks for listening,
John
