Debussy La Mer – Cello Part

Edited by Ronald Leonard

Title: La Mer
Composer: Claude Debussy
Instrument: Violoncello
Edited By: Ronald Leonard
Instrumentation: Orchestral
Pages: 13

The cello part for Debussy's La Mer, L. 109 has been edited by Ronald Leonard, principal cellist of the Los Angeles Philharmonic from 1975 until 1999. Leonard's bowings, fingerings and other editorial markings have been added throughout the score.

La mer (The Sea) is a set of three symphonic sketches for orchestra composed between 1903 and 1905 that subtlety symbolizes the natural sea. By combining unusual orchestration and daring impressionistic harmonies, Debussy conveys wind, waves, and the ambience of the sea. Although the piece was initially not well received, it soon became one of Debussy's most admired and frequently performed orchestral works.
