Two Movements from “Suite Bergamasque”

In early 2016, my good friend Jacob Harrison asked me to make an arrangement of Debussy’s well-known “Clair de Lune” for orchestra for his group at Iowa State University and for the 2016 Iowa All-State Orchestra, which he was to conduct.  While examining the other movements in Debussy’s “Suite Bergamasque” I decided to make an arrangement of the Prelude, as well.

Jacob conducted the premiere of both movements with the Iowa State University Symphony Orchestra in October of 2016, and a subsequent performance at the Iowa All-State Music Festival a month later.
