Two versions[edit]

Please note:

  • This page has only the old, original 1977 "L" catalog
  • Before his death, Lesure released the definitive 2001 "CD" catalog ("CD" as in "Claude Debussy", mind you)

The old "L" catalog is still the one in use for opus numbers on CDs (as in "Compact Disc", mind you) and the literature. But the "CD" catalog is the last word. It's available at fr:Liste des œuvres de Claude Debussy (where, conversely, the "L" catalog is missing). 05:54, 3 October 2006 (UTC)

If people want to go down the "CD" path, here's my suggestion. A new page should be created called List of compositions by Claude Debussy by CD Numbers which is similar to the List of compositions by Claude Debussy by Lesure Numbers page (except of course with the L numbers replaced with the appropriate CD numbers). In addition, the List of compositions by Claude Debussy page should be edited to have both the L and CD numbers. A bit of work, but I'm happy to help where I can.

Definitely should be updated. For instance, the song (for voice & piano) Les papillons is currently missing from this list. And English Wikipedia deserves a complete one! (talk) 08:40, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

I wonder actually, does Lesure's revised catalog actually use "CD" for noting the numbers? I took it out of the library once (it was in French and not too helpful alas) and vaguely remember NO letters, just numbers. I actually was under the impression for a few years now since I discovered the second catalog that it was actually ALSO supposed to use "L" so sort of L1 and L2, but not using that makes more sense. Would love some anyone who has actual knowledgeable input on the subject. Also of potential note is the jrD numbers done by someone named John de Rooy, though perhaps this is just 'some guy on the Internet'. ♫ Melodia Chaconne ♫ (talk) 23:08, 13 July 2015 (UTC)
also, please note[edit]

See also the so-called "Etude Retrouvee" for piano solo (1915), realized by Roy Howat in 1979 from fairly complete sketches left by Debussy. Published by Theodore Presser Co. (for North America). I don't know if such a work belongs on a list of completed compositions, but it is musically a worthwhile investigation. 02:40, 27 April 2007 (UTC)KK

Additions by Sibref[edit]

The recent addition of Vocal score, transcribed by André Caplet and Prelude to Act II, orchestral score are external links and should be placed on a separate page linked from Le martyre de Saint Sébastien. Does anyone mind if I set that up? One trouble is that I don't know what else to put on that page. It would become the shortest of stubs. HWV258 (talk) 01:33, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
