Note de programme

The combination of oboe, horn and harpsichord was devised by Debussy for the fourth of his instrumental sonatas, which death prevented him from composing. This piece could be imagined as a ‘homage’ to Debussy and Couperin, in the manner of the latter’s L’Apothéose de Corelli or L’Apothéose de Lulli. All indications in French are taken from works of Couperin. Dynamic indications (in round brackets) and other markings (in square brackets) are to be treated as the benign suggestions of a very expert editor.
