Claude Debussy–Des pas sur la neige

for string orchestra (2017) | Premiere: North Hollywood High School String Orchestra; Adam Karelin, conductor

Préludes Book I: VI. was written between December 1909 and February 1910. Rather than titling each piece at the top of the page, Debussy writes a titular phrase at the conclusion of each prelude. The sixth prelude, Des pas sur la neige, was orchestrated for the North Hollywood High School String Orchestra as part of a two-year fellowship and premiered in the fall of 2017.
