Program Notes

The Première Rhapsodie (First Rhapsody) by Claude Debussy is a piece for accompanied solo clarinet. Composed between December 1909 and January 1910, it was dedicated to the French clarinet professor Prosper Mimart.

In 1909, Gabriel Fauré, director of the Paris Conservatoire, named Debussy to its board of directors (le Conseil Supérieur). One of Debussy's first duties was to supply two works for the next year's clarinet examinations. The Rhapsodie was first performed as part of the examinations on July 14, 1910. Debussy considered the piece 'one of the most charming I have ever written,' and liked it enough to arrange the piano part for orchestra in 1911, producing one of his very few concerto-type compositions.
