About Claude Debussy's Preludes Book II

Debussy’s two books of preludes amount to a revolution in piano writing, and reflect better that any of his other works the span of Debussy’s achievement.
Both books include musical idioms from many different parts of the world (Spain, Scotland, Italy, the Orient etc.) and the evocative titles, placed as afterthoughts at the end of each piece, often allude to literary works by Shakespeare, Dickens, Baudelaire, Shelley and others.
