This sheet music is an arrangement for one piano, four hands. Debussy’s “Epigraphs antiques” are six short pieces that Debussy composed between 1901 and 1903. The first suite of Debussy’s Préludes for piano was published in 1910. Debussy was inspired by the French art-collector Gustave Moreau, who had written a book about Egyptian hieroglyphics and lent Debussy his collection of prints after the composer expressed interest in them. Debussy later said that he regarded “the ‘hieroglyph’ as the ideal musical expression for what I have to say”. Debussy did not illustrate specific ancient texts; rather he used abstract titles to evoke the spirit of the orient.
