Description:
Program note (English): (First radio-performance: July 6, 1978 (broadcast 20 July) - Radio Kamerorkest, Ernest Bour, conducting; first concert performance: October 28, 1979 - Grote Zaal Concertgebouw, Amsterdam - Concertgebouworkest, Bernard Haitink, conducting).
In 1914, shortly before World War I and four years after his death in 1918, Debussy completed his Six épigraphes antiques, a suite of six short pieces for piano-four hands (...). The composition has a remarkable hasty texture and does not reveal a typical piano ornamentation; it is in certain sense already particel (score-design), which reveals a certain instrumental source on each page, the source of 'music for two harps, celesta and some woodwinds.' Especially the dominant place of the harps can be seen in the scores' written notes. Strengthened by the knowledge that Debussy (...) himself thought of an orchestration, I have considered my circumstances for the orchestration as a leading principle (...). - RUDOLF ESCHER
