Debussy's Sonata for violin and piano, the third of a projected set of six sonatas for various instruments, was the last work he completed. It was written in the winter of 1916-17, when the composer had already been suffering for more than a year from the incurable disease from which he died early in 1918. III as he was, Debussy played the piano part in the first performance in Paris (May, 1917), with Gaston Poulet as the violinist. It was the great man's. last appearance in Paris as a performer. He himself wrote of this Sonata as ' one of those countless little intimate tragedies that overwhelm you without making any more noise than a rose shedding its petals, leaving the rest of the world at peace '.

Friedrich von Flotow was born in Germany a year before Wagner, and died within a few days of him. He wrote a number of operas, of which Martha and Stradella are the best known. Stradella, though it had great success in Germany, was a failure in London, and was never even produced in Paris. The overture, however, is very often played. Flotow was much in Paris ; the early part of his artistic career was spent there, and later in life he returned and was elected a member of the Institute.
