Debussy confidently wrote to his publisher Jacques Durand in August 1905: I believe without unwarranted vanity that these three pieces will prove to be good and that they will take a prominent place in the literature of piano music to the left of Schumann or to the right of Chopin as you like it . Debussy s Images already popular during Debussy s lifetime delight with their iridescent tone colour and dazzling harmonies which reflect the newest discoveries in harmonic chemistry . The virtuosic second series is notated throughout on three staves.In commemoration of Debussy s 150th birthday Bärenreiter is publishing an Urtext edition of these piecesreflecting the most recent scholarship and source analysis.
