Debussy composed Estampes after he discovered the Javanese culture at the 1889 Exposition Universelle in Paris. The composer would then get even more delicate and exotic in his new artistic and stylistic horizon. The next two pieces are an invitation to dance: Souvenirs du Louvre underlines the French legacy of sarabande, and L’Isle joyeuse uses the Spanish habanera rhythm.

Although Ravel’s brilliant orchestration of Pictures at An Exhibition is often played, the original version remains a classic for pianists. Based on paintings by Mussorgsky’s friend Viktor Hartmann, this visit in sixteen parts is a metaphoric journey of senses and carries away from France to Italy, from Ukraine to Poland.
