This was Debussy’s attempt to musically portray the early African/American in a minstrel show setting. Each player has an important roll in this number. It has many wide leaps and a big low G is required in all of the parts as well as many high Cs. The dynamics are equally important. If this were performed in contest and played well, it would definitely get a #1 rating as well as being fun to play.
