Debussy, Claude: Valse romantique
pour clarinette et piano
'In Debussy's case, (...) I was always interested in works that offered possibilities beyond the bounds of the piano, possibilities for orchestration. Just as with Liszt it was often possible to see that certain of his works had been written for piano for publication purposes, so with Debussy it is clear that mainly his song accompaniments exceeded the bounds of possibility for the piano,' Kocsis stated in one interview. Perhaps that recognition also encouraged him to arrange the popular piano work Valse romantique (1890) for clarinet and piano. The arrangement pinpoints superbly the sensitive, almost ingratiating tunefulness of the Waltz, adding to the clarinetists' repertoire a piece that plays well and is rewarding to perform.
