Claude Debussy’s daughter Emma-Claude began taking piano lessons at the age of 3. Her proud father composed the Children's Corner as a present for her, even though it was much too hard for her to play at the time. Instead, it entertained her because it starred her favorite toys.

Music used within the program:

All from Debussy’s Children’s Corner Suite.
