Notes and Editorial Reviews

Starry Night is Michael Lewin’s fourth Sono Luminus studio recording, providing the companion disc to his critically praised Beau Soir (DSL-92175), containing the Debussy Préludes Book II and other works. Starry Night opens with worldly “Estampes” (Prints) (1903). It follows with the delightfully impressionistic “Arabesque No. 1 in E Major (1888), “Golliwog’s cake walk (1908), “Les soirs illuminés par larder du charbon” (Evenings lit by the burning coals) (1917), and, of course, the early “Nuit d’etoiles” (Starry Night) (1880). The album finishes with the “12 Préludes, Book I” of 1910.
