    Debussy and Ravel are both in my top 5.

    What are some lesser known gems that are your favorites? Thinking outside the usual suspects (La Mer, Jeux, Preludes, Nocturnes, Etudes, etc)? Cheers

    I love Debussy's Six Épigraphes Antiques. Very beautiful works, and unfortunately not performed very often.

    D's Cello Sonata is well worth a listen:

    I agree with the above suggestions, my favorite work you didn't list is the Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp. I also really like the Petite Suite for piano (four hands) there is a really nice orchestration of it on youtube.

    The String Quartet deserves a mention, but I suppose it is one of the usual suspects.

    Here I am again with more obscure Debussy! This is Debussy's incidental music for a play by Gabriele D'Annunzio, Le Martyre de Saint Sébastien.

    Abbado was such a fine conductor.

    I am vaguely familiar with this piece, but will revisit. Cheers!

    LOVE both pieces! Thanks for the mentions.

    +1 for his String Quartet. But I think his piano output is just breathtaking, especially those "Dancing Snowflakes"!

    Good ear for details.
