Cakewalk 'Le Petit Negre'

Claude Debussy

 

 

 


A work by Debussy which was composed for children - 'the little negro' of the title (which is often no longer permitted to be used because of the racist connotations) is a direct connotation of the Golliwog's Cakewalk from Children's Corner, similar in that it has clear influences from ragtime jazz music and also because the motions of the performer are so important within the work's realisation. Anyone that hears this can't say that Debussy didn't have a sense of humour.

Keyconcepts: Piano Music, Impressionism, Debussy, Recital, Silent Film, Romanticism, Fin-de-siècle, Short Film.
