Premiere Rhapsodie for flute and clarinet decet
Claude Debussy composed First Rhapsody in 1910, dedicating it to the French clarinet professor at the Conservatoire de Paris, Prosper Mimart. Its debut for clarinet and piano was later that year. Debussy orchestrated the accompaniment in 1911. It is from that score that this delightful flute ensemble accompaniment is derived.
