Debussy planned to write six sonatas before he died, for various combinations of instruments, but only got around to writing three before he died of colon cancer.  This Cello Sonata is the first one he finished.  He originally wanted to call it "Pierrot angry with the moon", refering to the unhappy clown character in Commedia dell'arte theater.  You can imagine PIerrot in this music: whimsical and funny, but occasionally revealing an undercurrent of sadness.
