Notes and Editorial Reviews

Classic stereo recordings of Debussy orchestral masterpieces with the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos.

(La Mer:) “a strong in Mediterranean atmosphere...La Mer has an underlying grip...concentrates on evocation at the opening and creates a real pianissimo, helped by the wide dynamic range of the recording...overall there is plenty of excitement, with the LSO virtuosity in the finale matched by the rich-toned ardour of the strings when they rise to the emotional peak of Jeux de vagues." (Nocturnes") "Fetes proceeds spectacularly, glittering in colour...not conventional readings but full of impulse and superbly recorded.” - Penguin Guide

 Music Great Fidelity Not So Much March 28, 2015 By Duane K. (Scottsdale, AZ) See All My Reviews "All was good except fidelity. Extreme volume required to hear some tracks. Suddenly the music would surge and the Bose would be too loud." Report Abuse
