Claude Debussy's Petite Suite was composed between 1886 and 1889 after a commission by Durand for piano music for skilled amateurs. It was first performed in 1889 by Debussy and Durand together. The four movements transcribed in this full score are:
En Bateau, Cortege, Menuet and Ballet. I have always loved this piece because of its lush melodies, sheer exuberance and timeless quality. It has been transcribed for many orchestral and chamber groups in the past, but I felt it lent itself especially well to guitar trio. I made this arrangement to bring it to a modern generation of skilled amateurs, this time on acoustic guitar. TAB is provided to help with note placement. Individual movements and parts are available via my Score Exchange page (Lisa Marie Gabriel) and back tracks are also for sale on Tradebit (Persimew).

About the Author

Lisa Marie Gabriel was fortunate enough to work for Lincolnshire Music Service as a guitar teacher for many years, at one point as team leader, but she is now retired from teaching. Composing has always been an interest and she is trying to find more time for this now. She is revising earlier compositions between writing new ones and transcribing and arranging classical music for guitar. What she composed as a student was out of its time - modern classical music was then relentlessly atonal and Lisa enjoys expressive melody and lush harmony. She will arrange both vocal and instrumental music when time permits - any genre within reason. Hobbies apart from music? Lisa Marie Gabriel is also a poet and novelist.
