Notes and Editorial Reviews



Unfailingly beautiful though Alain Planès’s playing is, his Debussy is far from an indiscriminate blanket of lovely sounds. He goes instead for the specific, finding drama and deep feeling in these works. It is the culmination of his Debussy cycle on Harmonia Mundi, and an appropriately commanding finale.

-- Gramophone [9/2007]
