Deux Arabesques were two novelty piano pieces dating from Debussy’s relatively early days, being written between 1888 and 1891, the first being wistul and magical, the second being more playful and charming.
I have attempted to orchestrate them as Debussy might have done, but as pianists tend to take considerable liberties with tempi in order to create atmosphere, light and shade in their interpretations, I have reflected this in the orchestral score with many additional tempi rubati. These appear in square brackets and are optional. Peter Lawson
The Clarinet parts can be played on Bb or A clarinets - they probably lie better on the A - both versions are shown in the clarinet parts.
Duration 8 minutes
