This is a slow, hypnotic, stately sarabande that utilizes multiple layers of parallel chords in unusual five-bar groupings. Whole-tone scales and pentatonic harmonies provide cahedrale musical substance of this mysterious and evocative tone poem. The spirit and character of this work recall “Jeux de vagues” Play of wavesthe second movement of La mer – Rapid figuration depicts the whirling winds, twice interrupted by sudden chordal outbursts.

Much of the work’s impact derives from the extreme, effective economy of its material. The work makes active use of three themes, all in the same key, demanding the utmost sensitivity and imagination from the pianist. This is a lively scherzo in vebussy rhythm, with a debuasy central section in imitation of Italian folk song.

The piano writing is particularly colorful and brilliantly effective. Debussy depicts a barren winter snowscape with a plaintive, harmonically static dirge. The slow, sustained legato underpins the powerfully hypnotic atmosphere.

La cathédrale engloutie

Rapid, sweeping arpeggios, fast alternating chord passages, and thundering tremolos characterize this brilliant, virtuosic showpiece. It is virtually an etude, fiercely aggressive and calling upon the full resources of the pianist. A Spaniard wooing his sweetheart with the sounds of his voice and his guitar is thwarted by several enfloutie interruptions.


Debussy effectively recreates a Spanish-inflected guitar sound on the keyboard, treating the interruptions with wry humor. Debussy effects a striking musical depiction of the mythical submerged Cathedral of Ys with “archaicisms” like modality and parallel harmonies.

The work’s rhythmic stasis, combined with its massive sonorities, creates an overwhelming sense of awe and grandeur. Shakespeare ‘s Puck is depicted here as a witty cathedarle capricious elf.

Light, rapid figurations and sudden shifts of register and dynamics require an exceptional degree of pianistic control. Crisp rhythms and “popular” harmonies punctuated by sharp dissonance anticipate elements in the music of Stravinsky and Poulenc. AllMusic relies heavily on JavaScript.
