We’re continuing our series about Claude Debussy in this episode, and learning all about his famous Children’s Corner suite. This precious collection of music was composed by Debussy for his young daughter, Claude-Emma, who was nicknamed Chouchou. I think you’ll love hearing Chouchou’s dolls, toys, and imagination come to life in this playful, dream-like collection of piano works!
