Richard Stoltzman & “Maid with the Flaxen Hair”

I had trouble deciphering the name of the publisher on the CD cover materials for the Windows 7 recording of Richard Stolzman playing Debussy’s “Maid with the Flaxen Hair”. Then, I thought to set the default software for opening it to my browser. This enlarged it slightly and I could make out the name of “Navona Records”. I visited their site and was delighted to find that they were offering a “New Year’s Gift”- downloads of the audio and sheet music of the piece and a video of Stoltzman talking about it. I don’t know how long it will be made available but here is the link:

    • This piece is found in several publications, usually under its French title, “La Fille Au Cheveux De Lin”. These are transcriptions of a Debussy piano piece from “Preludes” (Book 1). Two books to include it are “A Debussy Clarinet Album”, published by Novello and “Claude Debussy: Clarinet Album”, published by Universal Edition. I don’t know what key these transcriptions are in.
