This âlittle Suiteâ was published in 1908 and was dedicated to the composerâs then three-year old daughter: âTo my beloved little Chouchou with the tender excuses of her father for what follows belowâ. The first movement, Doctor Gradus ad Parnassum, alludes to a study by Muzio Clementi. The titles of nos. 2 to 6 can be traced back to Debussyâs love of everything English. Although the music addresses childish fantasy, at the least a talented amateur is required to perform it. The well-known number 6, Golliwoggâs Cakewalk, is in ragtime style and shows Debussyâs easy-going approach to popular trends in music. Childrenâs Corner was immediately extremely successful and has been arranged for various groups of instruments.
