After all, there was no such thing as piano music before Debussy.

Wow! Your musical arrogance certainty has no bound! I hope you know how
to play the piano and some of its repertoire , preferrable something
before Debussy :-)
I don't get it. Arrogant for an opinion? If it were libellous I
could understand it, but why insult me for the opinion that all of
Beethoven's piano music, for example, can be orchestrated at least
passably but some of Debussy's cannot, ever? This is not a negative
criticism of anyone, and it has to do with listening to the music,
not playing any particular instrument.
How many of Legnani's "Caprices in all Keys", HVL's 20 Etudes, or
Sor/Segovia's 20 could be orchestrated? (Sor/Segovia #14 has been,
I've heard it.) Which ones? Why? Is the guitar potentially an
orchestra? [yes] If not, why not? Is the piano potentially an
orchestra? [no] If not, why not?
Answering any of these questions will prove your own arrogance.
