This little Suite was published in 1908 and was dedicated to the composer's then three-year old daughter: To my beloved little Chouchou with the tender excuses of her father for what follows below. The first movement, Doctor Gradus ad Parnassum, alludes to a study by Muzio Clementi. The titles of nos. 2 to 6 can be traced back to Debussys love of everything English. Although the music addresses childish fantasy, at the least a talented amateur is required to perform it. The well-known number 6, Golliwogg s Cakewalk, is in ragtime style and shows Debussy's easy-going approach to popular trends in music. Childrens Corner was immediately extremely successful and has been arranged for various groups of instruments. This publication is edited by Ernst-Günter Heinemannr with fingerings by Hans-Martin Theopold and a preface by François Lesure. Oxygen Music stocks a range of popular classical piano music including Claude Debussy's Children's Corner Henle Urtext Edition.
