Gigues

Claude Debussy
(1862-1918)


"Gigues" is the first of a set of three pieces for orchestra called "Images," the other two being "Iberia" and "Rondes de Printemps." After a long introduction, the first theme is given out as a solo in the oboe d'Amere. This is followed by a second bassoons. These two themes form the principal material of the piece and are worked up in the Debussy manner.
