Conductor and separate harp parts
The transcription for two harps of Claude Debussy's Golliwog's cake walk is an original and virtuoso work, which pays tribute to American ragtime music. The two harps dialogue with humor and finesse, exploiting the sonic and rhythmic possibilities of their instrument. The piece is part of the collection Children's Corner, composed by Debussy between 1906 and 1908 for his daughter Chouchou.
