Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jeux (Games) is the last work for orchestra written by Claude Debussy. Described as a "po me dans " (literally a "danced poem"), it was originally intended to accompany a ballet, and was written for the Ballets Russes of Serge Diaghilev to choreography by Vaslav Nijinsky. Debussy initially objected to the scenario, but reconsidered the commission when Diaghilev doubled the fee. Debussy wrote the score quickly, from mid-August to mid-September 1912.[1] Robert Orledge has analysed the chronology of Debussy's composition and preserved manuscripts of the score.show more
