La Mer, which is an impressionistic work through and through, was composed between 1903 and 1905. Debussy however refined this work up until at least 1913. These corrections are found in a score which Debussy gave to his wife as a present for her private library in 1913. This source has only recently come to light and has been evaluated for the very first time for this edition.

The editor has also drawn on several other important sources which were previously unavailable or unknown. This scholarly-critical edition which is based on the latest musicological research is an absolute must for conductors, orchestras and librarians.
