Debussy “Petite Suite”


For 2013 Season of the Los Angeles Musical Salon, we commissioned composer Marek Zebrowski to do a chamber music transcription of Debussy’s spritely Petite Suite, for piano, violin, viola, cello and double bass.

This commission was a continuation of our long-term project to expand the repertoire for the relatively rare instrumentation of piano quintet with double bass—the same instrumentation as Schubert’s beloved Trout piano quintet. .

This new piece was premiered by the Upstream Ensemble II at our April 13, 2013 concert. The video of this world premiere performance can be seen above (approximately 13 minutes). For audio only: DebussyPetiteSuiteAudio

The score is available for purchase at our online store. For more info, email info at or call 310-470-0770.
