Footnotes

  • DEBUSSY ON 'NUAGES': the Nocturnes of 1897-9, of which 'Nuages' forms the first movement, were published in 1900-1901. Debussy wrote in his well-known Introductory Note to the piece: "'Nuages' renders the immutable aspect of the sky and the slow, solemn motion of the clouds, fading away in grey tones lightly tinged with white."
