One of the many delightful piano works by Claude Debussy that I enjoy is his Sarabande from the suite Pour le Piano. Completed in 1901 and premiered in January , 1902, this melancholy piece with its seventh and ninth chords must have seemed daring for the time. I find it serenely beautiful, calming to the spirit both when played and listened to.
