To my wife
and our daughters
Eileen and Sue-Lynn
The material of Chapter One originated from my notes on how the late Mlle. Yvonne Combe taught our daughters. Mlle. Combe was Debussy's disciple and helped transcribe his new compositions as he played them out on the piano. She performed that incredible Second Piano Concerto by Saint Saens with thecomposer conducting. Every audience that attended recitals by her students, especially when they played Debussy and Saint Saens, was mesmerized. This book had to be written: without it, her passing would havedeprived this world of a priceless art.
