The stark bleakness of Debussy's sixth 'Prélude',' des pas sur la neige', or 'Footsteps in the snow', is uncompomising. There appears to be no known origin for the title, but the composer's directions assert that the insistent opening rhythm 'must have the echoing evocation of a sad and frozen landscape', with the fragmented melody 'painful and expressive'.

This arrangement was specially made for the album 'Preludes, Rags and Cakewalks' (MPR 005), performed by The Symphonic Brass of London conducted by Eric Crees.
