Claude Debussy  - Prelude No. 1: "Danseuses de Delphes"
Christopher Jessup - piano
Debussy's Danseuses de Delphes (Dancers of Delphi) was inspired by a sculpture on exhibit at the Louvre. The music evokes images of Ancient Greece, whose culture was then popular in many Parisian intellectual circles. A masterpiece of atmosphere, the work is hardly a great challenge to the pianist's technique, but quite interpretively demanding.
