Syrinx - Claude Debussy

Uploaded on Mar 12, 2011

Syrinx is a piece of music for solo flute which Claude Debussy wrote in 1913. It is commonly considered to be an indispensable part of any flautist's repertoire. Many musical historians believe that "Syrinx", which gives the performer generous room for interpretation and emotion, played a pivotal role in the development of solo flute music in the early twentieth century.

I've been wanting to play this piece for forever, but I'm not actually capable of doing so :')

I'm actually playing this piece this year (I'm a freshman in high school). I've listened to it so many times it's such a mysterious and deep piece. Great job on transferring it on Musescore!

A 1913 manuscript signed by Debussy (but disputed) has a tie here. It makes it considerably more difficult to play, but more consistent with measure 32.
