About this album

Debussy was strongly attracted by the title ‘Images’. He used it for the three groups of three pieces each all of which have meanwhile become a familiar part of the repertoire: the ‘Images’ I (1905) and 11 (1907) for piano and the ‘Trois Images’ for orchestra, composed between 1905 and 1912. Less well known is another group of three ‘Images’ composed as early as 1894, but not published until 1978. For this reason, they are not mentioned in several of the composer’s biographies. The word ‘oublies’ was only added to the title by the publisher, Arthur Hore.

Reviews

Volkskrant

(...) Zijn spel straalt grote vitaliteit, kennis van de materie en subtiliteit uit. (...) Preludes & Images is een van de interessantste Debussy - uitgaven van de laatste tijd.(...)

CD Review

(...) he also gives us the impression (impressively captured by the Channel sound crew) that we truly are inside the music and inside the world of Debussy- a treat that we rarely experience on any recording

Tribune

(...) An altogether remarkable issue.

Times

(...) "an unprecedented spectrum of tone" (...)

Fono Forum

(...) Trots Verwendung eines ‘Originalinstruments’ empfehlenswert.
