Hehe yes I'm known for that. I've tried hard, trundling repeatedly through a 3-CD survey, but failed to pick up more than a handful of memorable tunes. It's all very well done but just doesn't grip me in any way.

I didn't know this piece at all. Fascinating to hear the hints of what is to come later as Debussy finds a distinctive voice.
