The Girl With the Flaxen Hair (La fille aux cheveux de lin) is the eighth of Claude Debussy’s Préludes, Book I (1909-1910), for piano. It is gentle, fluid, and full of light, flowing harmonies. This colorful adaptation of one of Debussy’s best-known works will be a worthy challenge and a musically rewarding experience for all medium- and advanced-level ensembles.
