Just wondering if anyone know of good arrangements of Debussy for
guitar trio. I saw in an old catalog (GSP, I think) there was Clair

arranged by the trio themselves. It's called "Arabesque" on the ASV
label. I have it at home, and though I haven't listened to it in a

the pieces have at least one guitar that is tuned up ( either terz or
quart, I think).
Here is a web site for the trio:
You should be able to contact them through their management to inquire
about their arrangements.
If you have the time, though, I would recommend doing your own
