Performance Notes:
      Unlike Maurice Ravel's “Mother Goose”, which was composed for performance by the two young daughters of the composer's friends, the Children's Corner Suite (1906-1908) presents formidable difficulties. The first performance was by the renowned virtuoso Harold Bauer. The composer dedicated the Suite to his daughter as follows: “To my dear little Chou-Chou with her father's apologies for what is to follow.”
      In “The Little Shepherd” the composer sketches in music the impression of the little shepherd and flock from Chou-Chou's toy Ark. The Suite was orchestrated soon after its composition by Debussy's friend, Andre Caplet.
