Debussy: Estampes Pagodes La soirée dans Grenade Jardins sous la pluie The three impressionistic Estampes, (literally ‘prints’ or ‘engravings’) were composed in 1903. Pagodes is an imaginative dream picture of oriental pagodas, musically inspired by the Javanese and Cambodian gamelan musicians Debussy had heard in Paris. The melodic ideas are founded on the oriental pentatonic scale. La soirée dans Grenade (Evening in Granada) is a voluptuous, evocative nocturne, though Debussy’s only first-hand knowledge of Spain was a day in San Sebastian! It is based on habanera rhythm. Jardins sous la pluie (Gardens in the Rain), a toccata, has two French nursery songs woven into it and may suggest capricious spring weather seen through a nursery window. © Eric Mason
