Notes and Editorial Reviews

Two discs for the price of one!

This set completes Bennett Lerner's distinguished survey of Debussy's Complete Piano Music, and adds additional works written in Debussy's memory by admirers of the great French composer-- Bela Bartok, Paul Dukas, Manuel de Falla, and Florent Schmitt.

"(Lerner's)...sense of color and poetry washed the music with every possible evocative tinge, and the collection, ending appropriately with "Feux d'artifice", offered Debussy at his most imaginative, played with stunning insight and control." - Byron Belt, Newhouse Newspapers
