Catalogue de l'œuvre de Claude Debussy. Paris: Durant et Cie, 1962.
A guide to the works of Claude Debussy. One of initial catalogs done on Debussy. Useful to the researcher in recognizing what research has since been completed and which works have been discovered since the time of the publication of this catalog.
A comprehensive list of the complete works of Debussy known to the publisher as of 1962. Includes significant information regarding the known works of Claude Debussy. Details the instrumentation required for each work.
Divided by the genre and medium of instrumentation used. Major chapters include: Theatre Music; Symphony Music; Piano Music; Chamber Music; Vocal Music; Arrangements, Trasncriptions, and Extraits; Revision; and Works Projects, and Non-published Works. Each citation includes (when the category is relevant): statement summarizing each work, publication date, editors, duration of the work, summary of the acts, characters involved, instrumentation used, and the text source.
Too much research has since been performed for this to be considered a comprehensive source of the current known information regarding Debussy's works.
