Debussy' music and related arts are in boom now in Tokyo

From special exhibition "Debussy, Music and the Arts" now being held in a museum in Tokyo, in commemoration of his 150th birth year:


≪ Portrait d'Yvonne Lerolle en trois aspects ≫, 1897, by Maurice Denis, lent by the Musée d’Orsay.
Debussy dedicated a set of piano pieces "Images oubliées" to Yvonne Lerolle when he was 32 but it was left unpublished.  In later years, from this set, "Sarabande" was incorporated into another set "Pour le piano" and dedicated to her again after her marriage.
