Composed between 1909 and 1912, the two books of Préludes for Piano are among the late works of Claude Debussy (1862-1918). Each of the twenty-four compositions - twelve per pound - bears an evocative title. They reveal a great diversity of styles, textures, climates and emotions, and constitute a digest of all the peculiarities of the musician's language. Debussy was careful not to indicate titles until the end of the piece, so that everyone can discover his own impressions without being influenced by existing images or poems. The term "impressionist" takes on its full meaning here. The Linen Hair Girl is the eighth prelude of the first book. He is famous for his emotional depth despite his technical and harmonic simplicity. No one knows who the flax-haired girl was, but this wonderfully subtle miniature awakens our imagination.
