Claude Debussy: Images Book II

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.
Throughout the second book Debussy employs very complex pianistic textures. Cloches ŕ travers les feuilles (Bells through the Leaves) is a perfect example of his musical “impressionism”, presenting several layers of musical detail. Et la lune descend sur le temple qui fut (And the Moon Descends on the Temple that Was) uses oriental, gamelan-like sonorities – Debussy had been fascinated with the gamelan ever since hearing it at the 1889 Paris Exposition.
The graceful and virtuoso last piece, Poisson d’Or (Goldfish) is perhaps the most well-known of all the Images.
